"Open Minds" Kosta Boda Art Glass Vase
by
Ulrica Hydman-Vallien

Signed and Dated

~ please scroll down for more photos ~

Modernist Scandinavian art glass vase designed and painted by Ulrica Hydman-Vallien
for Kosta Boda of Sweden.

Clear hand-blown formed and shaped glass with scattered bubble inclusions. Hand-painted and fired figural enamel decoration.

Signed and dated by the artist, in fired enamel, on the side, near the foot in the back:

"Ulrica HV / 86"

Signed and numbered by the glass company with engraving on the bottom foot rim:

"Kosta Boda - Artist Coll. - Ulrica HV - 49828" SIZE:

Height - 12.5" / Diameter - 5.5"

Weight - This vase is a rare and attractive example of Ulrica Hydman-Vallien's series, "Open Minds" for Kosta Boda. Instead of having been made from colored glass, as most examples are, this piece was made from a clear glass, allowing the decoration to be seen from all sides and giving a variety of expression to the Picasso-esque face painted on the vase by Ulrica. As well, this vase is different than most in that it has a rim that was cut while hot and the corners of the cut were separated and extended upward giving the face a feline or 'cat-like' appearance.

The facial decoration is loosely painted in Ulrica's unique style in black with red lips and light blue eyes.

The glass body of the vase is heavy and an added decoration is the tiny bubbles, mostly near the bottom, that add another layer of dimension to the piece. The pontil, on the bottom of the piece has been nicely ground and polished and overall the vase is of the highest quality, as is the case with all Kosta Boda Swedish art glass.

This piece is in perfect condition. There are no scratches, no chips, no haze to the interior or exterior, no damage and no restorations. Ulrica Hydman-Vallien (Swedish, b. 1938) is one of Sweden’s best known glass artists, whose unmistakable figures have embellished a variety of things besides art glass, including such as mobile phones and the tails of airplanes. Ulrica Hydman-Vallien’s most important form of expression is her powerful imagery.

Ulrica Hydman went to Konstfack in Stockholm where she studied ceramics and glass . Her teacher there was Stig Lindberg . At the College of Arts, she met her future husband, Bertil Vallien, who she married in September 1963. After completing the program, together they made study trips to Mexico and the United States, during the early 1960's , where they both worked with ceramics. Back home in Sweden again Bertil Vallien was offered a job as an artist and designer at Afors glassworks and they soon moved from Stockholm to the small glassworks city in Smaland.

She paints her striking and humorous designs straight onto the glass with free and unrestrained energy. She made her breakthrough with Caramba and Open Minds, followed by her popular Tulipa range. PLEASE NOTE :
