By coincidence I found a picture of the "Abina" vase, designed by Jan Johansson for Orrefors in 1998 in a magazine* article by Lesley Jackson.

Quote
...he has given a dynamic contemporary twist to the Ariel technique by creating tooled air patterns of crescents and rings

I googled and presto: http://aurora.sunderland.ac.uk/gateway_to_glass/htmlsite/h_journal_refereed_swedishglass3.htm which seems to be identical to my recent find - except for the absence of colour. So now I'm no longer convinced it is Pukeberg...   The plit thockens!

Ivo: Thanks for the reference to Gateway to Glass: great pics and a useful article.

I'd noticed the similarity of the crescents and moons on your piece to the Jan Johansson piece. One is pictured in Orrefors: A Century of Swedish Glassmaking, p. 153. However, it states that they were made as part of an Expo edition (of either 100 or 200 pieces) in dark blue, green or amber. No clear.

And to further complicate, there's this piece on eBay.

Just to add that Reijmyre also used the bubble technique in the 50], a vase and bowls; clear with a green stripe running around.
