Red Rim 10" Bottle by Bertil Vallien for Kosta Boda

Back to basics. I wanted to create a classic, decorative and functional series that celebrates the craft and the inherent beauty of the glass." - Bertil Vallien 

Red Rim is hand-made in several steps. First, the first parison of lead-free crystal is rolled in powdered color. The color is then heated before the parison is blown into a shape that gives the molten glass its optical pattern. Clear glass is gathered over the parison to enclose the optical pattern in the glass, and then the glass is blown into its final form and shaped into a bowl or a vase. Finally, the piece is attached to a glass-blowing pipe and blown up a touch more before the red rim is applied from a color rod.

He undertakes what he himself describes as a never-ending research quest, in close cooperation with his co-workers at Åfors 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.
