This bowl was designed by glass artist Ulrica Hydman Vallien for Kosta Boda. It is one of her Unique pieces for Kosta and was hand painted and signed by Vallien herself.

The bowl is numbered '487 83' (indicating that it was made in 1983) and is marked to the base "Kosta Boda", signed "Ulrica HV" and has the original
Kosta Boda paper label. It measures 25cm in diameter x 10.5cm deep and is in very fine condition, with only light signs of wear on the bottom.

This padded cameo vase is the result of a collaboration between renowned UK glass artists Allister Malcolm and Helen Millard.

Allister and Helen were recently selected for a collaborative residency at Corning Museum of Glass. This example was the first piece they completed at Corning and has since been donated to the museum. Further examples of their padded cameos will however be unveiled at the next National Glass Fair.

Detailed information about Allister and Helen's collaboration can be found on our News page.
