Studio Visits: Ida Siebke

A studio visit with glass artist Ida Siebke where we follow her into the glass workshop to learn more about her practice and how she utilizes glass in her artworks to create a sense of discomfort

This film shows a conversation with glass artist Ida Siebke in her studio, where she talks about her path to becoming a glass artist, drawing inspiration from nature, and working with topics related to mental health. At the early age of three, Ida told her parents she wanted to become a glassblower and has steadily followed this dream ever since. She now works full-time with glass. In the film, we also follow her into the glass workshop to see how she engages with the material.

Ida Siebke
(b. 1991) is an artist and glassblower living and working in Bærums Verk outside Oslo, Norway. Her practice is twofold – she makes art to be exhibited and produces glassware for everyday use. She has studied glass blowing at Kosta Glass Center in Småland in Sweden, and art at Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and Einar Granum Kunstfagskole in Oslo. She also holds a certificate of apprenticeship in glass blowing. Ida has exhibited her work in Norway and abroad, and participated in several international residency programmes at reputable glass schools.
