    Ulrica Hydman-Vallien"Desire, energy, passion – I can love and hate all at the same time. I’m both argumentative and totally committed. With glass, everything is possible. It’s immediate, intense, demanding; never is it just plain old glass. I use it to paint on and tell tales. I have no rules, and I allow my instinctive feelings to take me wherever they want."

    Ulrica Hydman-Vallien is one of Sweden’s best known glass artists, whose unmistakable figures have embellished a variety of things such as mobile phones and the tails of aeroplanes. Ulrica Hydman-Vallien’s most important form of expression is her powerful imagery. She paints her striking and humorous designs straight onto the glass with free and unrestrained energy. She made her breakthrough with Caramba and Open Minds, followed by her popular Tulipa range.
