A rare example of a Per Olof Strom vase for Alsterfors Glassworks, which is a moulded geometric architectural form rather than the bright cased glass Strom is mostly known for. In Midnight Grey it is influenced by modernism’s reinterpretations of the bas-relief. A sculptural form which has a long history in European art history. Modernist designers and artists used it as an expressive form - from the architect Le Corbusier, to English Modernists like Ben Nicholson. A beautiful piece signed to base 'P. Strom 68'
