The recently late Ulrica Hydman-Vallien, 1938-2018, was never ordinary and neither was her work. She once said “….never is it just plain old glass. I use it to paint on and tell tales. I have no rules…..”. That quote I believe defines her work. She studied at the College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm then furthered her education in USA and Mexico. In 1972 she began her career with Kosta Boda with her expertise in painted glass. Which she attacks with her own style and energy painting unmistakable figures and embellishments. She will me missed but her work will live on.
