Bertil Vallien Kosta Boda Swimmer Limited Edition of. 1000 Pieces Signed & Numbered Sand Cast Sculpture. 120 mm high without the stand and 85 mm wide at its widest point. Condition: Very Good Displayed Condition.For transparency: I have been over the sculpture with a jewellers magnifying glass and noticed. One tiny hairline scratch of no more than 3mm but cant find it again there are also two pencil. Point minute white dots on the surface I can only suggest these dots are part of the sand casting. And cooling process in my opinion they are not chips but with the way some buyers can behave. Regarding unique glass pieces I have to list anything with caution. None of these are noticeable to. The naked eye & are too small to photograph. Glass is an invisible material that eats the light and forwards it. No other work material is so volatile and wayward. That's why I'm so fascinated by it. A further Witten description for interested parties. This is another of Bertil Valliens captivating Sand Cast sculptures in blue glass. There is a central volcanic or organic cup in grey/silver blue and gold in the centre that. Has no bottom, it sinks on into the depths of the imagination. The top suggests a hole or a. Blue film with a round clear/silver bubble inside an oval bubble above it. Swimmer with a silver bubbled back circles the cup as if they simply belong, are exploring or.
The outside of the sculpture has black and white stripes around its avocado. Shaped form perhaps holding and protecting the fragile membrane of the underwater world inside. You will have your own ideas or simply appreciate it as another lovely piece.Bertil Vallien pioneered sand casting in the 1980s and began creating sculptures. In glass that inspired his now famous quote: Glass eats light. Sand casting is a process. That involves pouring molten glass into a hand crafted mould whilst adding detail, it is a. Highly skilled and perfected process. The coloured glass is also allowed to form its own. One off blend of colours bubbles textures and shapes during the pouring, settling and. Lengthy cooling process, no one piece is ever the same, every sculpture is unique even. If it isn't from a limited edition series. This like many of Bertil Valliens sculptures may have a spiritual and symbolic.
Expression which we can choose to engage with or not, they often raise questions of. The works frequently portray narratives and mythologies, many of which.
