Pukeberg art glass is well known for its chunky, minimalist 70s styling; you might remember the solid glass, single flower vase ‘Solifleur’ I featured recently. This pair of candle holders compliment that vase nicely: and they are extra collectible because they still have their Pukeberg labels intact.
I rarely venture into the 70s [mostly because I lived through the decade and in Australia it wasn’t pretty] – but Scandinavian art glass is always so beautiful- combining the abstraction of the 60s with the chunky aesthetics of the 70s.
Glass pieces that are now very collectible to look out for: Pukeberg, Kosta and Orrefors [Sweden]; Riihimaki and Iittala [Finland] and Holmegaard [Denmark.]
I’ve teamed the candle holders with a sprig of Silver Dollar Gum [Eucalyptus gunnii] – I love the greyish colour of the leaves against the glass.
The pair of Pukeberg candle holders are for sale: $AUD75
