In the hands of Bertil Vallien, the message through glass is both visible and hidden.
As a nature-lover – with his daily walks in the woods and along the water – he has learned a great deal about how nature tells stories. When he casts stairs in a block of glass, as in Hidden Stairs (and makes them impossible to tread), he creates something that is both real and not real. How did the stairs end up there? As if the glass had come up with the word “stairs”? Glass artistry and wizardry occasionally go hand in hand.
