Bertil Vallien’s glass sculpture “Passport Blue” fascinates with its mythological expressions. The boat is sand cast with a symbolic traveler. The sculpture is created by hand, which gives a unique feeling. “Passport Blue” belongs to Bertil’s famous “Boat” series. A craft that navigates the airspace with a passenger on its way to an unknown location. Foundation of hot-pressed iron. Hand-painted details that are placed in the heated 1200° hot glass. A magnificent work!

A permit to enter port and light anchor. A document that protects your right to travel, from place to place. Something that makes it possible to travel safely everywhere. Wherever.

Passport Blue was crafted in a limited edition of 100 pieces. Brilliant work of art by the Swedish glass Nestor!


Metal display stand from Kosta Boda and original box are included.


“The boat is a symbol of our collective consciousness. She is a life-giving mother to trust when society is separated from the solid earth.” Your boat may differ slightly from the sample images. Rest assured, however, that you will get a high-quality object that we have inspected and personally selected for you.
