A large, early 'Carborundum' vase by Erik Höglund, designed circa 1955 for Boda, Sweden.

This exquisite bottle-shaped vase is part of an experimental series by Höglund in which silicon carbide was added to the molten glass. This technique gives the glass an unconventional depth of character with an even covering of tiny metallic speckles.

Höglund designed a collection of elegant free-blown shapes for his new glass recipe, all of which are now highly collectable. This tapered 'bottle' design is particularly stylish and is one of the largest in the series.

The 'Carborundum' series was one of Höglund's earliest works for the Boda glassworks and the playful, informal approach to design set the stylistic precedent for his celebrated career.

The experimental series was first presented to the public in 1956 as 'Blå Bubblor' (Blue Bubbles) and was only in production for a short time.
