As funky as it comes! One-of art glass by leading Swedish glass artist Bertil Vallien.

Abstract patterns made with inset glass threads combine with leopard print exterior and bold rim highlights to create an absolute eyeful of colour in action.

The patterns appear (to me) to be of a fisherman on the dish and a cyclist in the bowl. However, it is not known what the artist had in mind.

About: Bertil Vallien (1938 - ) is a Swedish sculptor, glass artist, ceramicist and designer. He is among the elite of Swedish glass artists, with current works appearing in boutique stores in Stockholm and older works gracing homes and public spaces across Europe.

Authentication: Both pieces with etched signature, collection details and factory code. I have sourced and imported these from Sweden.

Condition: 9/10. The dish has 3 small (<1mm) spots with lack of glaze. This is a manufacturing defect inherent in making pieces of this complexity, but a defect none the less. These are only seen on close inspection.
