Hello, weather-watchers! No we're not in Kansas, and yes we DO have tornadoes in Sweden, but this Twister was inspired by the movie thriller of the same name. Art imitates art! Twister's spiraling sienna, tangerine and smoke storms are safely frozen in mid-spin in these graceful bowls and vases. Forecast: a prolonged period of collecting and gift-giving.

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.

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.
The Twister Pitcher is a Modern style product. Modern style is very sleek with clean lines, and generally incorporates high gloss using whites, greys, and blacks. A focus on geometry and
angular shapes is a hallmark of modern design. Glass and leather are also seen a lot with modern style. You can shop for more Modern Beverage Servers in the Kitchen & Dining section of our site.
