Planets– A series by Lena Bergström
The first Planets in Lena Bergströms universe were created in 2001. Over the years new Planets has been added in various colours and shapes depending on the season and theme. The Planets are the result of a long-time collaboration between Lena and the skillled glassblowers and master-cutters at Kosta Boda in Sweden. ”I want each Planet to be unique and beautiful. Like us humans. We all come from one egg with different content and then we are cut into different characters. We become our own small planets. ” – Lena Bergström, glass artist
Lena Bergström is one of Sweden’s most award-winning and productive designers. Art glass, utility glass, lighting, textiles, jewellery and public artworks. Nothing seems impossible for Lena. Together with the skilled glassblowers and mastercutters at Kosta Boda she is constantly challenging the limits of the glass.
”The unique properties of the glass and the craftmanship of the glassworkers always inspires me to great deeds but at the same time I want the end result to look natural and beautiful.” – Lena Bergström
