John Selbing (1908-2001) played for many years an important role for Orrefors as the company's photographer. In the early 1950s, he also designed some sculptures of thin glass in geometric shapes of which these "Klot över kon" are the most famous. Originally, they were composed as a group of three sculptures of different heights. In 1961 came the similar "Cylinder över kon".
