Ulrica Hydman Vallien

Ulrica Hydman Vallien was the daughter of Stig Johan Hydman and Margit Billberg-Johansson, and lived in Algutsboda. She made her debut as a glass-artist in 1972. As a protest against the conservative artist world she create the “rat bowl”. Hydman Vallien was one of only 50 artists chosen to work with British Airways to create designs for aircraft tails, napkins, porcelain, tickets and stationery for the fleet. She also took part in the Swedish National Museum exhibition Unga tecknare 1964–1966.


Hydman Vallien’s work can be seen at Nationalmuseum, Moderna Museet, Kalmar Konstmuseum and Göteborgs Konstmuseum.

As a tribute, Ulrica Hydman Valliens gata is a street named after her in Åfors, Sweden. She died in Eriksmala on 21 March 2018, three days before her 80th birthday.
