House Good 2021, limited edition 300. This beautiful House God in glass is part of Kosta Boda's tribute collection, created in memory of the iconic artist Ulrika Hydman Vallien. Ulrika Hydman Vallien is a colourful icon in Swedish art. The design is a combination of good craftsmanship and playfulness, and the beautiful details against the clear glass make the housegod to a fine interior detail at home. Comes with a wooden base and certificate.

Clear glass sculpture

Kosta Boda - 14.1 cm high

Designer: Ulrica Hydman-Vallien

This year's "House God" is inspired by the nymph parakeet Petito, which is a recurring source of inspiration in Ulrica's objects. The bird lived with the Hydman Vallien family and flew freely between their shoulders. One day Petito disappeared when a sudden thunderclap scared him away. He never came back.

"House God" is a fine collector's item that is produced every year characterized by Ulrica's various sources of inspiration. This year's "House God" is the third since the collection was launched. Once the collection has been archived, each "House God" will be a special item to have in his collection.

The glass is pressed into a mold, and the beak is shaped and attached afterwards. The decor is hand-painted by the stained glass painter Charlotta Kjellander. "House God" is limited to only 300 copies.
