Mona Morales-Schildt (1908-99) studied at the Higher School of Art and Design in Stockholm and then at poster artist Paul Colin's advertising and painting school in Paris. She was active for both Gustavsberg and Arabia before 1958 and then started at Kosta glassworks. There she was, along with Tyra Lundgren, one of the first two female artists. She is best known for the exclusive glass series Ventana (Window in Italian). This series consists of heavy glass pieces with cased in layers of  colured glass. The Ventana series began in 1959 and was inspired by the Venetian glass artist Paolo Venini. She was at Kosta until 1971.
