Orrefors cobalt blue vase with encased air trap decoration. This vase is fully signed in the pontil by artist Jan Johansson. Signed in script along the rim "Orrefors Studio 2001 , 9980 70 Jan Johansson 7-30". The vase is 6.25 inches high, and is over 1/2 inch thick, weighing 5 pounds. Crystal clear glass with very deep cobalt blue interior, with abstract shapes of air entrapped inside. Great optical effects, especially when you look inside. The technique is similar to vintage ariel. The decoration goes all the way around. Made of the flawless crystal you expect from Orrefors, with the great modern design you expect from their artists, and great skill you expect from their glassblowers. The shape is graceful as it sits on a sturdy solid foot, with acrylic bumpers put on at the factory so you don't scratch the furniture. In perfect condition. The smudges you see in the photos are just my fingerprints. A wonderful piece of modern art glass for your collection or decoration.
