About this title

Synopsis:

This book and its companion volume are the first in English to survey the entire range of Scandinavian glass companies and designers. Their beautiful glass has spawned one of the hottest collecting fields today. The volumes are divided by color, with the dark tones of Smoke and the clear crystal of Ice included in this book. Each volume has hundreds of color photographs chronicling the creations that arose out of Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Norway. Together these nations were responsible for producing some of the most extraordinary glass of the 20th century. Here is the high quality designer glass produced by skilled teams of glassmakers working at Orrefors, Kosta, iittala, Nuutajarvi, Riihimaki, Hadeland, Strombergshyttan, and Johansfors led in technical virtuosity and design innovation. Designers such as Tapio Wirkkala, Timo Sarpaneva, Vicke Lindstrand, Edward Hald, Nanny Still, Erik Hoglund, and dozens of others contributed more to 20th-century factory glass production than any group outside of Italy. With detailed captions, signatures and labels, company histories, designer biographies, a comprehensive bibliography, index, and price guide, this book -- along with its companion volume Fire & Sea -- will surely become the standard reference on Scandinavian glass and essential for collectors, dealers, researchers, curators, and anyone interested in modern design.
