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 Åfors Glassworks, several of whom have worked with Vallien for decades. Bertil Vallien is known most of all as the master of sand molding.
