This is a beautiful Orrefors Crystal Fleur Bowl made by Jan Johansson of Sweden in the 1980s.
This elegant crystal bowl is by Jan Johansson for Orrefors, in the Fleur pattern (4514-12).
Johansson has spent his whole career with Orrefors, since joining them as a recent art school graduate in 1969.
Orrefors reputation for fusing, and experimenting technical know-how, with artistic investigation, is in keeping with Jan Johansson’s own artistic aspirations.
Jan Johansson has built upon earlier design innovators, like Graal, developed in the first half of the 20th century, has broadened the range of the Fuga technique, another early 20th century innovation.
He loves to experiment with the relationship of glass, with light. And to this end a majority of his work is in uncoloured glass - to maintain the relationship between the two.
This is a lovely example of this relationship, and purity of crystal glass making.
Signed with the word “Orrefors” on the bottom.
