About this item

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

This piece is a miniature 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 body of the bowl is crafted from a warm, golden yellow frit glass. The frit glass technique merges fragments of coloured glass with clear glass to create the closely freckled effect, similar to the drifting within a snow-globe. The rim of the bowl is made of cornflower blue frit glass, with the frits of blue being elongated to create a streaked effect. The piece is finished with a ring of clear glass for the foot, which lightly elevates it.
