A very interesting piece by Norway's leader in glass making, Benny Motzfeldt. Her signature technique was to add a mixture of metal threads and metal gauze to the molten glass. This created interesting bubble patterns and her glass pieces have a very unstructured feel. Motzfeld was very influential to fellow glassmakers in Norway and elsewhere, and she generally bucked the broader Scandinavian trend toward design precision. This is a larger vase that suggests an energetic maker with a good artistic eye and a lot of creativity. It is in excellent condition with no issues. This is an especially good piece for Scandinavian glass collectors. I have included a picture of a similar piece held by the Smithsonian Museum of Design for the interested.
21cm H., 11cm D.
