Trillium, a Unique Tobacco Brown, Green & Alabaster Glass Vase by Gunnel Sahlin



Trillium is a unique handblown glass vase / vessel from the Hortus Poetica Collection by the Swedish artist Gunnel Sahlin. Soft, sensual forms are blown with abstract additions of complementary hues. Treating the glass as a canvas, the colours sit in perfect harmony. Trillium is all about the organic, alabaster sits alongside soft lime and deep khaki, all suspended in tobacco brown. Sahlin’s current passions include exploring the limits of glass materiality, colour, form and light taking her inspiration from the natural world around her. Sahlin was born in Umeå, northern Sweden, and studied at Stockholm’s University College of Arts, Crafts & Design. She has over 20 years of experience in the Swedish glass industry and has exhibited in New York, Norway and Tokyo. She has held a professorship at Stockholm’s College of Art, Craft and Design, as well as the renowned Pilchuck Glass School in the US. Between 1986-2005, she was designer at Kosta Boda, Sweden’s most prestigious brand of glassware and glass art.
