Gifts – Kosta Boda – Red Rim


Red Rim by Bertil Vallien


Wanting to make a classic and decorative, yet functional product that celebrates the craft and inherent beauty of glass, Bertil Vallien created Red Rim. The edges of this series are softly rounded and finished by a bold red rim of glass. While the body has a dramatic tension of twisted blue colors evolving an otherwise simple form into a work of art.

Products are hand-made, lead-free, and made in Kosta, Sweden.

Bertil Vallien

Bertil Vallien’s sand-casted glass boats stir up elements of the subconscious. If you pause to analyze them, they will become slippery and slip away, like dreams. These silent, slender boats have glided over the world’s seas with their messages and raised eyebrows for nearly 30 years. Loaded with frozen symbols and secrets, they speak to us of the existential.
