Edvin Ohrstrom Flickan och Duvan (Girl with Dove) Ariel vase for Orrefors in blue and amber glass. Signed and individually numbered 476A which dates this example to 1966.
An important piece of Swedish glass. The ariel technique was originated by Edvin Ohrstrom and Vicke Lindstrand at Orrefors in the 1930s. It is one of the hardest techniques in glass production to perfect as it involves using layers of coloured glass with an overlay of clear glass, as in the graal technique, but with the addition of trapped air pockets being incorporated as part of the design. This is one of Ohrstrom's best known designs using this technique.
Excellent used condition.
Card payments accepted.
Edvin Ohrstrom (1906-94) was a Swedish sculptor and glass designer. During the period 1932-57 he worked at Orrefors for two months a year. Along with Vicke Lindstrand he developed the ariel glass technique where layers of glass and bubbles were incorporated in the glass as part of the design. He also designed a wide range of etched and other glass that often has a strong sculptural character. His work is held in museums worldwide.
