This stunning small glass sculpture is from Målerås' Venus collection by designer Erika Höglund. Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, is according to the myth said to be born of sea foam. In Erika’s loving version of Venus she is dressed in barnacles and roses and surrounded by love and tenderness. The crystal block is cast and handpainted in soft pinks. It would look great on any shelf or mantelpiece, and also makes for a rather original paperweight. It would also make a wonderful gift for your very own Venus!
This piece has been designed and handmade in Maleras, Sweden by renowned glass artist Erika Höglund. Erika was born in Sweden in 1971 into a family of artists, where glass and design played an important role in everyday life. As a child she was fascinated by the teamwork that existed between the glassblower and the designer and what they could achieve by working together on glowing crystal. With this background and a fiercely independent and often wild and fantastic streak of creativity, Erika has opened up completely new perspectives in what can be achieved in the medium of crystal.
Each piece is signed on the base and comes safely packed in it's own Maleras branded box.
