Goran Warff created the Polar series with inspiration from landscapes and ice. Polar is a bold, artistic object from the archives of Kosta Boda. It originally launched in 1974 after its creation as a gift for the Sydney Opera House. Glass is a liquid. Its as alive as rippling water. In Polar, I have frozen that movement in time, capturing the convergence of ice and light in an optical phenomenon. Polar is uncompromising, filled with life and movement. Polar is a series of glass sculptures that can also function as candle holders. The production technique allows the glass to flow down, resulting in a unique object each time. When the piece is moved around the room, another dimension is added through optical illusion. Combine the different sizes to create a playful grouping, or display the biggest one as a carefully selected design object in an art-loving home.

With characteristic craftsmanship and good design, and an ongoing commitment to avant-garde expression, Kosta Boda has become one of the leading glasshouses in the world. The company's three glassworks in the villages of Kosta, Boda and Åfors each have exciting individual stories of their own, yet stand together under the common brand name Kosta Boda.

Eight designers are currently on retainer at Kosta Boda. They work with both utilitarian and art glass. The designers are Olle Brozén, Anna Ehrner, Kjell Engman, Ulrica Hydman-Vallien, Bertil Vallien, Ludvig Lofgren, Asa Jungnelius and Göran Wärff. Glass results from a great many meetings between people, artists, crafts people and lovers of glass.

The artists of Kosta Boda have a decisive role to play in all the creative stages of the process. The cooperation between the designers and the skilled craftspeople is very close; indeed, it is essential if the designers are to transfer their intentions to the glass.
