Ulrica Hydman Vallien is a colorful icon in Swedish art. She combined superb craftsmanship with boundless playfulness. Her characteristic motifs have adorned everything from crystal vases to British jets. She left no one untouched and is invaluable to us all.
Now Kosta Boda is releasing their third tribute collection in memory of Ulrica.
“I love to work with a theme. Glass offers possibilities that no other material can. It’s like the outpouring from a volcano where the glowing mass is rapidly transformed into ice. The challenge is to capture the look and the light at just the right moment to allow the glass to reveal its secrets.”
Bertil Vallien is Sweden’s most famous glass artist and designer. He has won numerous awards and is richly represented in museums throughout the world. Vallien works with a mystical, dreamlike and symbolic world of motifs and carries out what he himself describes as an investigation, in close collaboration with his colleagues, many of whom he has worked closely with for decades. Vallien is most famous as an expert sand caster. His solid boats in a deep blue colour are part of modern glass history.
