Oliver Höglund and Ryan Roberts are the creative minds behind SØKTAS, and the company’s inception began in Oslo, Norway where they first met. Oliver focuses on creating and designing the unique pieces, while Ryan operates the business. SØKTAS is a reflection of both their stories and visions. Oliver’s father, Ola Höglund and grandfather, Erik Höglund worked at the renowned Kosta Boda Glassworks in Sweden, and the craft has been passed down through the generations.
The skills and techniques learned by Oliver since 2001 have allowed him to develop his craft and create his own signature style. The process of hand-blowing glass is rigorous and intense, as the molten hot glass is shaped and blown by hand at around 1000° C by Oliver himself.
Made in Currumbin, Gold Coast.
