Lars Hellsten (b. 1933) studied sculpture at the Collage of Arts, Crafts and design i Stockholm before coming to Orrefors in 1972. He is also the designer behind such collections as CORONA and ODYSSEY and the heart-shaped AMOUR and MY HEART. Nature clearly inspire his art glass, too, including many grand pieces well suited for public places. His glass is characteristically massive and forceful, whether it be cast, mould-blown or free-blown.
