I love these two vases by Vicke Lindstrand very much. Normally I prefer colored glass, but these two are stunning in their simplicity.
It seems that they belong to his early designs. On modernistglass.com they say:
"The feature of this vase is that it's in the shape of a big wine glass but with a hollow base that was created by blowing a separate bubble and joining it at the narrow point, then cutting off the end to form a flat base. It's for this sort of process that glassmakers work in teams (much more than most other types of art) . You can't have one person blowing and joining two bubbles of glass. If he stopped turning one pipe, the hot glass would collapse. This piece was shown in the 1959 Kosta catalogue."
Please tell me if you have more informations about these pieces.
