Kosta Boda Brains Albert Sculpture

The dream-like visage appears over and over in Vallien's work in both his collections of practical household pieces like bowls, vases and plates, as well as his pure art glass. The enigmatic Brains series lies somewhere between sculpture and functional art: paper weights, good luck charms, desktop accessories. Each handmade Brain is crafted in a different technique, each has its own story to tell. Made to collect and to give to someone very special.

About the Manufacturer

Over the centuries, the artists and craftsmen of Kosta Boda have not only embodied the distinctive folkways of Scandinavian design, but helped define those traditions. When you buy and give Kosta Boda, you're buying and giving history - a lineage of great design and craftsmanship that has endured for more than 260 years.

When the USA was established our company was nearly 50 years old. The original Kosta glassworks was born in 1742 as a partnership, the name an acronym from the partners' surnames: Anders KOskull and Georg Boglislaus STAël von Holstein. As Kosta grew and prospered, we helped grow an entire industry in Småland, Sweden's "Kingdom of Glass." In the 20th century, Kosta and neighboring glasshouses Åfors and Boda, were merged under a common owner. In 1976, we were renamed Kosta Boda.

What makes Kosta Boda so special is that we continually draw on our long history in developing exciting new ideas and methods in design and glass craftsmanship. Kosta Boda's designers and glassmakers are showcased in exhibitions and permanent private and public collections throughout the world.
