About the Designer
In the Scandinavian tradition, Kjell Engman is a born weaver of magic tales, a conjurer of times past and of wonders of the mind's eye. His narrative talents came naturally, learned from sources as diverse as Nordic myth and his yarn-spinning grandmother. Trained as a painter, ceramicist, and glass artist, Kjell joined us in 1978, after art school in Goteburg and the National College of Arts and Crafts in Stockholm. In 1981, he took a sabbatical to study at the Pilchuck Art Center in Washington state. Kjell is a tirelessly productive artist with a free-ranging imagination and a passion for storytelling, whose creativity finds expression in utilitarian as well as art glass. He lists among other sources of inspiration, the animal kingdom and the worlds of music and entertainment (check out his delightful 'Twister” series). Kjell often works on large installations, which include elements of sound and light. He is frequently commissioned for public works in Sweden and abroad and has a large number and wide range of pieces in the Kosta Boda collection.

I like the unique shape of this vase. But it is rather big than I imagined. Currently I put it in the guest bathroom without flowers. I imagine if you want to put flowers in it, you would need big tall flowers, and that would require a big space to host it.
