From The Bertil Vallien Collection...

The Beans glass sculpture is a beautiful site to see. Starting as a tiny seed, it sprouts and grows into a beautiful blue blown glass bean. The spirit of the glassworker infuses the liquid glass. Centrifugal force influences the shape, as it is carefully handled with wet newspaper. The collection is blown entirely free-hand to its unique shape, and no two pieces are identical.

  • Hand Made and Mouth Blown in Kosta, Sweden

About the Designer

Bertil Vallien is by far the most internationally celebrated glass artist and designer in Sweden. He has received numerous awards and his work is well represented in leading museums around the world. He works in a mythical, dream-like world of symbolic imagery. He undertakes what he himself describes as a never-ending research quest, in close cooperation with his co-workers at √Öfors glassworks, several of whom have worked with Vallien for decades. Bertil Vallien is known most of all as the master of sand molding. His solid, deep-blue, four-meter-long ship has become part of modern glass history. His creations include Ch√Ęteau, one of the best-selling ranges of handmade glasses over the years.
