A Fascinating Orb or Globe Limited to. Only One Thousand Pieces Worldwide by. The Master and Pioneer of Art Glass Bertil Vallien. And the Kosta Boda Marque.I love to work with a theme. Glass offers possibilities that no other.
Its like the outpouring from a volcano where the. Glowing mass is rapidly transformed into ice.
Capture the look and the light at just the right moment to allow. The glass to reveal its secrets.I have attempted to capture the depth of shape and colour of the. Encased sculpture in every photograph but none can do it justice. The main body is similar to other pieces I have and have seen where.
The skilful application of silver-leaf during the creative process gives. The interior sculpture a crinkled crackling and cracked texture with lines. And shapes on top of the amber glass creating depth and shadows of oranges. Browns and dark golden yellow ochre. Blackness within that shine glow.And contrast or blend as all the. Natural light or other forms of lighting. From rounded and oval shaped windows. Pointed ended oval clear glass shapes. That shine like bright chrome explode or. Organically grow outwards from within. The red figure has a slightly silvery metallic sheen to it. The red circling lines are a lovely red that orbit the globe. Mineral underwater mysteries or a far away planet who knows, but it. Could become the story of whatever freedom of your imagination. Allows if you give it light and space or it can just be a rare piece.
Of Swedish Art Glass to appreciate and enjoy. Bertil Vallien's gift is he always gives us the opportunity. And space to use our imagination to connect with his work on a personal, spiritual.
