Vase from the Cascade series, designed by Per Lutken for Holmegaard in the 1970s. The vase is 27.50 centimeters high and in very fine condition. Earth colors with a touch of pink. The vase is signed HG 9 and PL for Per Lutken.
In 1962 Per Lutken said about the glass:
“The glass will first and foremost work by its own nature. Due to its reflexes, it will be in a special relationship with its surroundings. It will borrow from them and pass them on in a concentrated experience. It will embrace the least amount of light and send it forward stronger, more beautiful and more fun.”
(Freely translated after the book “Glasset” (Danish meaning “The Glass”. The book was published by A/S Korsør Glasværk (Korsor Glassworks) and A/S Cudoglas, Korsør 1962 – Korsor being af town in Denmark).
Per Lutken is considered to be one of Denmark’s most important glass artists and certainly also one of the most productive as he worked for the largest glassworks in Denmark, Holmgaard, from 1942 until his death in 1998.
