Vase ‘Fish Grail’ designed by Edward Hald for Orrefors, Sweden



Edward Hald (1883 – 1980) is one of the well-known
Swedish glass artists who have worked for Orrefors. After studying in Leipzig,
he completed his artistic training with Henri Matisse in Paris. The famous
Graal glass is one of the first masterpieces of Edward Hald, which he developed
together with Simon Gate and Knut Bergqvist. In the 1920s, his work coined the
term 'Swedish grace', the Swedish variant of Art Deco. The celestial globe that
Edward Hald created for the 1930 Stockholm World's Fair is seen as the pinnacle
of his career. During the Second World War he led the management of Orrefors,
which forced him to perform a balancing act between economics and art.
