Brains, first launched in 1999, originates in an artistic theme that I began working with in the eighties, inspired by a girl named Karolina Olsson who slept or, according to speculation, who intentionally opted out of life for 32 years. I enjoy developing objects suitable for production at the glassworks. So I scaled things back and created these heads, which I view as meditative anti-stress objects, for both the hand and the eye. I made a collection of expressions and names like Albert Einstein, Caesar, Pablo Picasso, the gods Thor and Oden, and more. Now Ie made a collection of twelve new ndividualsfor the Kosta Boda Artist Collection; they are unnamed, but through short poetic sentences, they comment on life events. Personally, I find them to be lovely company...

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.
