Item description for Gunnel Sahlin & Kosta Boda by Ralf Turander, Claes Britton & Tom Rafstedt...
This remarkably aesthetic book focuses on the twelve year period that Gunnel Sahlin spent as designer for the prestigious Kosta Boda glassworks, a period that saw the internationally renowned glass company leap into bold new directions. Not a craftsman herself, Gunnel Sahlin brought with her a host of ideas from unrelated disciplines, experimentation that stretched the limits of traditional concepts in glass design. Along with the craftsmen and glassblowers, she created extraordinary works of lasting beauty.
Gunnel Sahlin is in several museum collections, including the Museum of Glass in Corning, NY, and has had more than forty individual and group shows in Sweden, Japan, America, England just to name a few. She is professor of glass design at Stockholm art academy.
