Technical Specifications

Black Elements, a unique glass sculpture by Bertil Vallien from the Kosta Boda glassware collection.

In Bertil Vallien’s world we meet the inner essence of glass. In the Black Elements series the clear glass stands in a powerful contrast to the opaque black glass with Bertil’s famous hand-painted glass heads cast in solid glass blocks.

"Glass offers opportunities like no other material. It has everything. For me, the blowing room is the centre of everything. It’s like ladling matter out of a volcano and watching the glowing lava turn to ice. Knowing the exact moment at which to capture a shift of light or expression and wrench the secret from the glass is what it’s all about." - Bertil Vallien
