Snowball Tealight Votives by Ann Wärff for Kosta Boda
Snowball Votives by Ann Wärff for Kosta Boda
The shape and surface texture of each votive was inspired by snowballs and the thoughts of childhood winters. The skiing, sledding, snowball fights, then the candlelight dinners with family and friends. There, in the depths of winter, beautifully built snow lights illuminate the Swedish winter darkness. Not surprisingly, many Kosta Boda products allude to weather and to the comforts of home. This classic collection was designed by Ann Wärff, and since the collections introduction in 1973, Snowball is one of Kosta Boda's all-time bestselling products.

Ann Wärff was a founding figure in international "Studio Glass". During a career that to date spans forty years, she has worked as an engraver, a vessel maker, a sculptor, a stained glass artist, a water-colourist and a designer for industry. After studies at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Ulm, she married Swedish glass artist Göran Wärff and worked with him as a designer at Pukebergs Glasbruk 1960-1964, and then at Kosta Boda 1964-1970. Ten years of discipline as a designer in the glass industry gave her practical and organisational skills that most of her colleagues in the glass world, particularly those outside Scandinavia, do not have. An account of her decision to use sandblasting and etching techniques on glass underscores her technical adaptability.
