About this item

This delicious duo of handmade Swedish art glass is by Bertil Vallien (b. 1938 - ), celebrated glass artist, sculptor, ceramist and designer.

The pair are miniatures from the collectable 'Antikva' series from the 'Artist Collection'. The Artist Collection concept was introduced by Vallien to give glass artists the freedom for personal, creative expression and to remove the 'mass produced' feeling. Pieces are limited edition studio works, individual to the artist that created them.

The sea-green hexagonal bottle vase is crafted from a combination of sea-green and lime-green frit glass. The frit glass technique merges fragments of coloured glass in clear glass to create the closely freckled effect, similar to the drifting within a snow-globe. The piece is finished with pale blue frit glass neck.

The grape purple gourd bottle vase is also crafted from frit glass, a combination of grape/amethyst purple and freckles of sapphire blue. The sapphire blue frit glass is used to create the neck to complete the piece.

Unpackaged weight (both pieces): c. 0.2 kg / 170 g
