Venus Clam is shaped in a mold at Kosta Glassworks and gets its subtle pink from a certain pink pot color. The inspiration to Venus Clam is the famous painting the birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli, made in 1480, where the roman goddess Venus is brought to shore on a seashell. From the dreamlike painting celebrating beauty, the serving plate is made to elevate all places and occasions. The uneven base of the shell is mirrored in the flat surface of the plate. Streaks of color enhance the depth of the material which creates an alluring effect. It is a seductive invitation to life.

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.
