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, USA, Belgium and Denmark. In her work, Pernille 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 Victoria and Albert Museum, London, The Danish Art Foundation, Musee Ariana, Genève, Bornholm Art Museum, Denmark and Design Museum Denmark.
