Earth symbolizes our planet with a small house - which in turn can be associated with the image of a home, a castle or our place on earth. For Bertil Vallien, the house and home are a powerful metaphor for so much in life; like security, family, myself and mine - my own world. However, the house can also be associated with the limitations that the four walls provide - for some it is also a prison.
"Earth" includes three collectibles that in different ways inspire to reflect on the small and large in the world.
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.
