In Bertil Vallien's world, we meet the inner nature of glass. Clear glass stands in strong contrast to the opaque black base. Black Elements House of Mystery is cast in a charcoal mold with Vallien's well-known hand-painted head cast in the solid glass block. This object is part of the Kosta Boda Artist Collection.
Kosta Boda is one of the world's leading brands in glassblowing and glass art. Their ovens and glass huts in Småland have been in use since 1742 and today several well-known designers work in their studios around Kosta and in close collaboration with the craftsmen. In close dialogue, they explore and challenge traditional techniques and develop new techniques in the cabins when designs and ideas are to be realised.
