Bertil Vallien Atlas
|Arvinius + Orfeus Publishing
Swedish artist Bertil Vallien has gained a reputation as one of the world’s foremost glass practitioners, having worked with glass as a material for more than 60 years. Vallien pioneered and perfected the process of sand casting glass in the 1980s, expanding the possibilities for sculptural glass. Ethereal and mystical, his pieces reflect an unparalleled immediacy and dynamism which stems directly from working with molten glass. For the first time, ‘Atlas’ allows an intimate look into Vallien’s world through his own thoughts, words, and stories. The monograph contains a rich visual flow of mystical and coded glass forms, sketches, and newly shot images from inside his studio.
