I have for sale a lovely cobalt blue Orrefors fuga blue glass bowl.

In great condition it measures 13 cm in diameter and 5 cm deep. The only flaw is a small scratch on the inside of the base which is only noticeable with reflected light.

One of the world's most celebrated makers of beautiful crystal Orrefor is named for a beautiful place, a waterfall that tumbles into Lake Orrenas in the Kingdom of Glass - the Smaaland region where Sweden's glass-making industry has thrived for over 250 years.

Sven Palmqvist, an artist at Orrefors 1930-1972, developed the Fuga technique to provide Orrefors with a means to mass-produce domestic glass wares. The technique is characterized by its simplicity and its ingenuity and works as follows:

Molten glass is poured into a spinning mould that, through its centrifugal spinning force (hence the name “Fuga”), presses the glass outward and upward. The internal shape of the piece being produced is determined by an internal plunger. The whole process can be done automatically and takes less than one minute.

When the glass pops out, it is completely finished and does not need to be polished or need manual finishing in any other way.

Fuga pieces are not only made for the swedish market, but were mass-produced and almost immediately exported world-wide.

Around the world Orrefors is associated with unique glass articles, art glass, and custom glass that all add beauty to our everyday life.
