Bertil Vallien


Bertil Vallien transports his viewer into a realm of mystery, dreams and symbolism. As one of the worlds most renowned and innovative Swedish glass artist and designer, Vallien uses his versatile and distinct style to display an expressive reference to the journey of life.

Vallien began his career as a ceramicist, but felt glass offered endless creative opportunities to capture the essence of his work. To him, “Glass offers opportunities like no other material. It has everything…it’s like ladling matter out of a volcano and watching the glowing lava turn into ice.” As the foremost artist working in sand-casted glass, he takes an innovative approach to create his symbolic and mystical narratives and atmospheres. His aesthetic journey endures because of his undaunted curiosity and creative joy that emanates through each piece he makes.
