Edward Hald (1883-1980)
Painter, glass artist and graphic artist. Hald initially studied to be an architect, but wanted to become an artist and studied with Henri Matisse in Paris. In Sweden, he worked at Rörstrand’s porcelain factory, where he designed several tableware and thus contributed to Rörstrand’s success. In 1917 he started at Orrefors glassworks, where he together with Simon Gate created the so-called grail glass. He worked both as CEO and artistic director at Orrefors.
