Super egg

– A series by Bertil Vallien

Super Egg is proof of top quality glass-blowing. All Super Egg items are blown free-hand without a mould, and it´s fascinationg to see how the glassblowers control the molten blob, inflating the glass to its maximum and then shaping it using wet newspaper. The range is a tribute to our gifted glassblowers. A natural form for glass, as natural as a bird´s egg.

Bertil Vallien

“I love to work with a theme. Glass offers possibilities that no other material can. It’s like the outpouring from a volcano where the glowing mass is rapidlytransformed into ice. The challenge is to capture the look and the light at justthe right moment to allow the glass to reveal its secrets.”
