This gorgeous contemporary egg shaped art glass vase in cobalt blue and browns encased in clear glass is by American glass blower, Christopher Belleau. Belleau grew up in Wisconsin and began working with glass as an apprentice at age 13. He currently produces his art in Rhode Island. He has been working with glass for more than 30 years.
This beautiful vase is 6.5" tall. The bottom has some scratches from shelf wear, but otherwise the vase is in excellent condition. Belleau's signature is incised on the clear glass bottom long with "88 for G/G" (or possibly G/6) indicating production in 1988. The signature was impossible to capture on camera.
