For 39 years, Bertil Vallien's Hot Air Balloon hung in the Caroli shopping center in Malmö, Sweden.
To Caroli City he made two works, of which the hot air balloon is one. The second work was a zeppeliner. Throughout the years, the hot air balloon has fascinated Bertil to the degree that in 1963 he started a rocket and hot air balloon club together with some other artists in Åfors. In 1968, he was on the premiere tour of, "Emillie", Sweden's first hot air balloon ride. After that, there were many flights and a lot of rocket launches in the forests of Småland.

Bertil Vallien was born in 1938 and is one of Sweden's foremost glass artists. Bertil is that Swedish glass artist who has attracted the most attention abroad as well. When he was going to have an exhibition at a gallery on Fifth Avenue in NYC, they closed the street for a while in order to be able to lift his boats through the windows of the gallery.
