Scarce Signed Goran Warff Kosta Boda Large Art Glass Modernist Bowl'Polar' 1974. This absolutely stunning large art glass footed bowl is a fabulous and rare work by renowned glass artist Goran Warff for Kosta Boda. Acquired from a collector with some scarce and one of a kind Kosta Boda pieces, only a handful of these stunning unique crackle ice textured bowls were made, with only one online to view (that I could find) which is signed'Kosta Warff' & numbered'1/20.
However, though this particular piece is also signed'Kosta Warff' it is not numbered. Other pieces from the collection prove that this collector had acquired a large number of one of a kinds, rarities and personal pieces, so it wouldn't be surprising to determine that this is a piece outside of it's saleable numbers. Created in Mid-Century Sweden, this piece shows exactly why Scandinavian design was at the forefront of the modernist aesthetic of the 1960s & 70s. With its stylish asymmetric shape, imposing size, dramatic colours & crackled icy texture, it is reminiscent of deep glacial pools reflecting the Aurora Borealis. It truly is a beautiful example of Modernist art.The perfect addition to any collection. Just over 10.5in in length from rim to rim. Just over 9.5in in width from rim to rim. Just under 7in tall, 3.75in base width. Around 6in depth when measured from inside the bowl. Condition is'Used' - Overall good with minor wear and scratches & one chip to underside of base. Full report is as follows. Small scratches around rim and to surface just under rim in places.
There is a chip out of the centre of the base and base is generally worn with light scratching. Some inclusions including a bubble that feels smooth on outside but slightly rough on inside. Also a sort of wavy line in the colour inclusion. I've done my best to show everything in photos.
