Common to all is the shape of the head and they often have a mythological expression. The heads have great symbolic value and are great as decoration, as paperweights or just to hold in your hand and enjoy.
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.
