This is a brand new Kosta Boda art glass sculpture called "Karolina" from the Brains series. It has the original box, the velvet bag, and the head all in perfect never used condition. There is one bubble in the art glass but it is not a defect.We may not know who Bertil Vallien had in mind for all the names of his Brains sculptures, but each shows a distinct persona. The collection of three-inch, three-dimensional glass heads is absolutely stunning, and choosing one from among seven (or more, as new ones are added) is no easy task. But each makes an unusual gift, and a functional one at that, whether used as a desk paperweight, a conversation starter on a coffee table, or a pocket good-luck charm. Each comes in a soft, black bag inside a striking gift-box, ready to impress and intrigue the recipient. Bertil Vallien, one of the world's most celebrated glass artists, collaborates closely with the master glassmakers at Kosta Boda who produce these unique heads from lead-free crystal.
Starting with basically the same face, the Brains icons may have color, texture, gold leaf, or silver leaf applied during the creative process. The following descriptions help distinguish the choices. Albert: frosted charcoal gray and white; Karolina: frosted blue; Cesare: textured rust and blue; John Silver: silver leaf with red eyes; Midas: gold leaf with one blue eye; Jimenez: silver leaf over ultramarine blue; Pablo: gritty green with rear blue swirl. Once captivated, you'll be tempted to collect Brains yourself even as you give them as gifts.
The crystal heads may be washed by hand. The item "Kosta Boda Brains Head Blue Karolina, New In Box" is in sale since Wednesday, March 14, 2018. This item is in the category "Pottery & Glass\Glass\Art Glass\Scandinavian\Kosta Boda".
