The design on this vase evokes the feathers of a guinea fowl, a bird that is raised domestically in Sweden but is native to the African continent.
Decorated through a variety of techniques, including engraving, acid treatment and grinding, this vase exudes an effervescent appearance. Öhrström named the technique “guinea fowl” because the cuts incised within the glass evoke the African bird’s feathers.
