I'd like to share two of the only three Ulrica Hydman-Vallien glass from the Nevada series items I have, these are two large goblets (approx: 26.5cm/10.1/2 inches) I just love the devilish look about them, although I realize they probably aren't devils, but they are to me...:-) They are well signed on the base and her signature is at the bottom of each bowl.

I love this quote of hers which is taken from her Kosta Boda site.

"Desire, energy, passion – I can love and hate all at the same time. I’m both argumentative and totally committed. With glass, everything is possible. It’s immediate, intense, demanding; never is it just plain old glass. I use it to paint on and tell tales. I have no rules, and I allow my instinctive feelings to take me wherever they want."

Ulrica Hydman-Vallien is one of Sweden’s best known glass artists, whose unmistakable figures have embellished a variety of things such as mobile phones and the tails of aeroplanes. Ulrica Hydman-Vallien’s most important form of expression is her powerful imagery. She paints her striking and humorous designs straight onto the glass with free and unrestrained energy.
