Stine Hoff studied at the Brabrand Glass School in Denmark and at Orrefors in Sweden. She has always been fascinated by the process by which glass transforms from liquid to solid form and the crucial, nerve-wracking seconds in between. Stine Hoff opened the first glassblowing workshop in Bergen with two friends in 1992. It took a lot of enthusiasm and courage to set up this type of business at that time, as it was unusual to see glass blowing outside of the large glass factories. The workshop added an exotic element to Bergen's urban landscape.
