Complete illustrated catalog of the company's glass works as of June 1986, including unique pieces and limited editions. Illustrated in color. Text in Swedish, English, rench and German. In an age of fast food, fast cars, and fast living, there is still something that is made slowly and carefully. The glass of Kosta Boda. Here teams of five men still gather to make one wine glass. Artists still wander through the workrooms, picking up a vase here, a bowl there, checking the purity of color, the cleanness of an edge. And the mold maker still carves his precise shapes from a log he's just brushed the snow from. In the small villages of Kosta, Boda, Johansfors and Afors, there is little to distract one from the glass. Aside from the glassworks, a restaurant, and a few stores, there is nothing here but fir and birch trees. Forests that attracted the early glassmakers in the 1740s, when Kosta Boda began. They found everything they needed here to perfect their magic-wood, water, fire and solitude. Originally, Kosta Boda made window glass. Soon, though, they were blowing crystal bowls, vases, stemware. The kind of pieces that can be found today in museums in London, the Cooper-Hewitt in New York, and the Royal Palace in Stockholm. Yet each piece is born in the same place, deep in the woods of Sweden. It is here that beautiful ideas are spun into molten glass. 304 pages.
