Masquerade and Mine ED 300 -21
"Masquerade and Mine" is based on the same shape as the small bowl in the series "Mine", but on a larger scale. Mine is one of Kosta Boda's most popular series with bowls, vases, small plates and drinking glasses. When the series was launched in 2002, it became a real success and sold a quarter of a million drinking glasses in the first year.
The inspiration for the series' name comes from when Ulrica's grandchildren Isa and Ante visited her studio. They saw all the samples and each took a glass, pressed it against themselves and said: "Mine!". That's why the series is called Mine.
Masquerade and Mine is a mouth-blown bowl in clear glass with painted decor. The decor is inspired by several paintings from Ulrica and is reproduced by the stained glass painter Charlotta Kjellander.
The bowl is manufactured in a limited edition of 300 pieces.

She was the embodiment of Swedish glass art. No Swedish artist can claim anywhere near the popularity of Ulrica Hydman Vallien. Whether collection or one-of-a-kind pieces, she put the same passion into every work of her hands. With motifs from the innermost corners of human life, she has created a narrative glass art form with feminist and Biblical touches, alongside her utility glass. Tulips and snakes figure repeatedly in her own Paradise works. Assertive, controversial, beloved.
