Designed by Artist Ulrica Hydman-Vallien for Kosta Boda - Modern sandblasted Glass Bowl signed by Artist. This is a hand-blown Modernist Art Glass Bowl made at Kosta Boda and designed by Ulrica Hydman-Vallien 1990. She was one of the most dominant designers for Kosta Boda and very collectable.
The bowl had thick double glass walls with a silky mattered red mottled surface, made by a complex technique. Bowl has the Kosta Boda sticker and its hand signed on the bottom " Kosta Boda, Ulrica HV, 50115 ". Rim 13cm diameter & base 6 cm diameter. Developed two new techniques that provide the decoration of the glass with unimagined depth. In the Kabale technique (which is based on the patented Orrefors technique Graal) the core is made out of different layers of glass that together give a great depth to the decoration.
A pattern is then sand blasted and painted with enamel paint. The core is now burnt to fix the colour.Finally, another coat of glass is added. The result is a pattern with great depth where all the layers are visible. Another technique, Juvel, is very similar, but in this technique parts of the glass are sand blasted. The parts that are covered stay the same colour as they were before. The glass is then glass treated with acid to make it smooth.
Lastly, the glass is painted and the colour is fixed by burning the colour. Ulrica has worked as a teacher at two art schools, the Pilchuck Glass School in the USA where she taught from 1982 to1988, and Bildwerk in Germany where she taught in 1989.Her work has been exhibited on a great number of occasions throughout the years. As one can expect she is also represented at many museums across the globe.
