I love Höglund's work. I did before knowing how much of a revolution it was in the 50s, when in his early 20s designed these bubble-filled glass items in the simple colours used in the traditional Swedish everyday glass items.

I've only got 6 of his glass items in my collection but they are a important part of it!
