BERTIL VALLIEN AND BERENGO STUDIO ARE ABOUT TO START A NEW COLLABORATION

On a recent trip to Sweden, Adriano Berengo met with artist Bertil Vallien and his wife Ulrica Hydman­Vallien at their beautiful home on the wonderful Stockholm archipelago to arrange a new collaboration with Berengo Studio.
 

Bertil Vallien is one of the most important names in Swedish glass, who first gained international recognition with his works for Orrefors, one of Sweden’s first and most innovative glass factories. The hallmark of Bertil Vallien’s works is sand casting, a method which he developed while working with Orrefors for glass from what was originally an industrial technique used in metal casting. He continues to explore its possibilities today. With the decline of the great Swedish glass factories of Orrefors and Kosta Boda, particularly in the Småland region, Vallien’s collaboration with Berengo Studio takes on a greater significance.
 

Vallien’s collaboration with Berengo Studio began in 2012 in an exhibition entitled “9 Rooms”, organized by Berengo Studio on the occasion of Venice Biennale of Architecture. Many of the works in “9 Rooms” were realized in Berengo Studio using Vallien’s sand casting technique, which was new for Murano glassmakers, and others were graciously on loan from private collections. After its success in Venice, “9 Rooms” was held in the historic Palazzo Guinigi in Lucca, Tuscany.
