Edvin Ohrstrom (1906-94) was a Swedish sculptor and glass designer. During the period 1932-57 he worked at Orrefors for two months a year. Along with Vicke Lindstrand he developed the ariel glass technique where layers of glass and bubbles were incorporated in the glass as part of the design. He also designed a wide range of etched and other glass that often has a strong sculptural character. His work is held in museums worldwide.
