The Japanese master Fujita is one of the great glass artists of our time, best known to art-lovers everywhere for his exquisite lidded boxes. At the age of 80, he is still creating in glass, both in Japan and on the island of Murano near Venice, where he creates his almost equally famous Venetian works. In this inspiring book, Danish glass artist Lyngaard follows the master in his daily work at home and abroad, documenting his work processes and other activities.

Unique among Swedish designers and artists, Ulrica Hydman Vallien - whose glass designs are synonymous with the huge commercial success of Kosta Boda - has made her supremely personal style her trademark. This monograph shows a master artist, now in her seventies, who has always had one foot in product design, and one in fine art. She has been creating vigorous, color-soaked images and symbols, full of whimsy and inspiration, for half a century now. In the bright pages of A Paradise Attack, we step into the artist's idiosyncratic pictorial world through the medium of ceramics, painting and glass.

This beautiful book focuses on the 12 year period that Sahlin spent as designer for the prestigious Kosta Boda glassworks, a period that saw the internationally renowned glass company leap into bold new directions. Not a craftsman herself, Sahlin brought with her a host of ideas from unrelated disciplines and her experiments tested the limits of traditional concepts in glass design. Along with the craftsmen and glassblowers, she created extraordinary works of lasting beauty. Stunning images of her work presented in a playful, creative, and personal layout make this book an aesthetic delight.
