    When Carina Seth Andersson designed a collection of vases for Svenskt Tenn in 2009, she started from the exotic items that Svenskt Tenn's founder Estrid Ericson brought home from her many trips around the world and translated them to exoticness of our time. Winding forest roads, cones on the pathway, early dawn-fresh summer mornings and the scent of resin inspired her to create the vases Dagg (Dew), Stubbe (Stub) and Kotte (Cone). The Dagg vase has become a modern classic in Svenskt Tenn's range, and it is often seen in interior design magazines and private homes around the country.

    “The vase is a utility item that has developed a life of its own. One can never know in advance how a product will be received, but you can have a hunch. If there is enough time for seriously working through the product, that will also show when presenting it to the public. It took a few years before the vase found a wider audience, but credibility is probably the key to its final success. The vase is organic. It is made and interpreted by experienced hands. There is nothing static about it. Each vase is blown in the same mould, but depending on the glass mass and the heat, each one gets a slightly different expression.” – Carina Seth Andersson.

  • Care instructions

    Keep in mind that humidity can damage table tops and other surfaces. Wipe the vase dry immediately after filling it with water, and always keep it dry to reduce the need for polishing.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Glass

    Svenskt Tenn cares about the environment and sustainability, and the classic glass items in its range are no exception. When Skruf Glassworks in Småland, produces glass items for Svenskt Tenn, it uses lead-free glass pellets that are mixed with approximately 30 per cent shards, the broken glass leftovers from manufacturing. The pellets come from Emmaboda, which is about 20 kilometres from the glassworks. Skruf uses an electric furnace, powered only with electricity from water and wind power. Waste, such as corrugated board and other combustibles, are sorted and sent for recycling. Any broken glass that is not used by the glassworks is sold to glass studios, which means that almost all of the glass is recycled. The premises themselves are heated with the help of wood pellets.

    Purchasing Swedish glass cuts down on transport distances, helping to avoid a heavy climate impact, and by producing timeless products of high quality and a long service life, we are taking efforts not to waste the earth’s resources. Classic glass objects are rarely thrown away. Instead, they are preserved throughout the years and can be resold or passed down as gifts to the next generation.

    Production

    The Dagg vase is blown in graphite mould at Skruf Glassworks. Its popularity has had a major impact on the glassworks, which, thanks to the vase, has been able to recruit staff and open a new oven. The specific shape of the product requires enormous precision of the glass blower, correct glass mass and right temperature. When making the vase, there are always at least two people involved. The first step is to collect glass from the oven and form a small glass ball; a so-called "post".

    To this post you add some more glass mass until it is large and stable enough to carry the approximately 3.5 kilograms of heavy mass needed to blow the whole vase. The hot glass mass is released into the graphite mould while the craftsman gently blows it into its right shape. After that, the glass is cooled in a refrigerator from 500 down to 35 degrees. This procedure takes about four and a half hours. Finally, the top is removed, and the edge polished to a smooth surface.
