Göran Wärff
"The melt, glowing in the furnace, is what draws me to new discoveries. With every gather, I feel an almost irresistible urge to give new expression to the magic of glass, to create a work that will be the bearer of light, the sea and the air. Each piece that I design I try to make a receptacle for light, for warmth and sensuality."

Göran Wärff has been retained by Kosta Boda since 1964 and has a studio at Kosta glassworks.

"Glass is oxygen--light is energy--glass is light."
So runs the mantra of Göran Wärff, grand old man of Kosta Boda's designers.

Few, if any, have such a deep feeling for the glass melt as Wärff, who has always shown special interest in preserving the traditional skills of the master craftsmen in glassblowing and glass cutting.

The play of light within the clear volume of the glass and the endless optical phenomena that occur as the glass diffracts the light are a recurring theme in Wärff's art and design work.

Nature and the play of light in nature are his other main sources of inspiration, beyond the glass itself.

Measurements: 10 cm wide by 10cm deep by 10cm high.
