Erik Bertil Vallien, born in 1938 in the Engelbrekt district of Stockholm, is a Swedish sculptor, ceramist, glass artist and designer. Vallien is an internationally renowned glass artist and designer. He works in a mythical, dreamlike world of symbolic images. He undertakes, how he describes it himself, an endless research journey in close collaboration with his colleagues from the Kosta Boda glass factory, many of whom have been working with Vallien for years.
