Nothing grows up to heaven, but I see the silverpipes as thin straws striving upwards. Safe in the wind among the waving silver leaves that form a random pattern on the stem close to the ground. The shimmering colors are achieved by the addition of silver, which produces this special effect in the glowing heat. Partly blown in a steaming wooden mould. The clear upper section is drawn freely by hand for as long as the hot glass permits. A masterpiece in the studio, which requires not only demanding glassblowing, but also long arms

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.

Cashs of Ireland is the largest independent retailer of Kosta Boda in the U.S.
