“The poppy is associated with Demeter, the Greek goddess of fertility and the harvest. My inspiration comes from the moment the poppy opens up and spreads its seeds across the countryside. The colours symbolize the various play of colours in rain, frost, daylight and sunshine. The incredible shape, with its uneven edges and texture, was a bit of a challenge to create in glass.” By Kjell Engman

“I have been inspired by the ability of glass to flow freely and in a playful way, yet it is strict and clean. In Twine I have combined these two qualities into a vase which I think reflects the light in an exciting way so that it can be just as beautiful with or without flowers.” Glass is poured by hand over the mouth-blown vases to form an organic pattern.

The edges are softly rounded and finished by a bold red rim of glass. While the body has a dramatic tension of twisted blue colors evolving an otherwise simple form into a work of art.
