Sculpting with glass for more than two decades, Pernille Braun has participated in a large number of exhibitions internationally and has had solo exhibitions in France, Denmark and USA. Pernille is currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In her work, Pernille Braun investigates aspects of time, place and matter, which with great craftsmanship she explores in the medium of glass. She studied at the The Royal Danish Academy of Art, School of Design and gained a masters degree from the Royal College of Art in London in 2008. Her work can be found in the collections of The Danish Art Foundation, Musee Ariana, Genève, Bornholm Art Museum, Denmark, Design Museum Denmark and Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

The artist is drawn and challenged by the glass’s ambiguity and unique property of repeatedly transforming from soft to a solid mass. This transformative nature of the glass is seen in her works which emphasize the illusory and multifaceted possibilities of the material. In this way, Braun challenges our biased notions about the possibilities and limitations of materials but also our constructed reality.
