UHV Pet Bottle Aubergine -21
PET became Ulrica's comment after Björn Kjelltoft at his graduation exhibition at Konstfack painted Ulrica's pattern on PET bottles and cardboard plates. Did a designer have patents on universal symbols and patterns? Instead of suing, Ulrica regained control of her eyes and tulips and had them adorned on glass PET bottles in a limited edition. The bottles became very popular and came to be used as the perfectly unique and always filled water bottle.

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.
