His solid, deep blue colored glass boats are part of modern glass history.

-Bertil Vallien’s glass exhibition at Ambiente represents an exceptional type of design that is characterized by the presence in time and with a gripping prestigious exterior. The new exhibition has taken nearly a year to complete and most of the major glass art objects have spent months in specially designed ovens to slowly cool down.
