The idea behind Troll Vase started as a study of the properties of glass - examining how the intensity of colour changes depending on the thickness of the material. The result is a vase featuring a dynamic change of thickness throughout, from solid coloured base to thin transparent, bubble-like top. Troll takes its name from a painting by the famed Norwegian artist Theodor Kittelsen, depicting a mythological water spirit, Nøkken, rising from the dark waters of a forest pond. This is a wonderfully rounded vessel with a unique expression.
Available in three sizes.
