Pagod– A series by Anne Nilsson
Pagod is a stylish vase that brings you back to the 60’s. The vase is mouth-blown by skilled glass blowers at the glass works in Kosta. The technique is called underlay, a multi-layer glass which means that clear glass lies like a casing over the stained glass and gives a beautiful and processed expression. The playful design is the work of Anne Nilsson. She is one of Sweden’s most important glass designers and can take advantage of the craftsmanship, the simple language and function in an extremely elegant way. This vase is designed to give cut flowers a beautiful expression.
After being trained in glass and ceramics at the University Collage of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, she became a designer at Höganäs Keramik AB. Since 1982 she has created several popular glass series for Orrefors and Kosta Boda. In fact, she´s received the Excellent Swedish Design award for 15 different product series, She creates unexpected, simple forms that add a touch of beauty to everyday life.
