About Jason Blak Bengtsson
Jason was born In Copenhagen and from an early age knew he wanted a career where he was creating and making with his hands. When he was 18 years old he went to Kosta Boda to start his education in becoming a glass blower. He has worked with glass for more than 29 years and has developed and become one of Denmark’s most highly skilled craftsmen in blowing glass.
Jason is connected to a New Zealand glass blowing community and travels out on a regular basis to find inspiration, learning new techniques and blowing for a loyal clientele in NZ.
Most of Jason’s inspiration comes from the movement of the sea. The constant change of shape and form is mirrored in the way a glass object always comes out as a unique piece through the process of making.
