For your consideration, an art glass vase in the Art Nouveaux manner by the noted American artist Steven Maslach (b.1950). The piece features rich silver oxides that glow with iridescent shades of silver, mauve, purple, and blue. The lamp is in excellent condition and measures 12 ½” to the top of the chimney with a 4” tall x 4” diameter body. Maslach developed the use of dichroic glass in the decorative arts in the late 1970’s, founding his glass blowing studio in 1971. His work is found in major private and museum collections around the world and has been featured in numerous publications. In 1977, First Lady Rosalynn Carter commissioned him to create a piece for the exhibit "American Crafts in the White House." In 1988, he was the Grand Prize Winner in the goblet competition, "A Glass for Wine" sponsored by Baccarat Crystal and Taittinger Champagne. From 1989-1993, his work was included in a European Tour of "Craft Today USA" which toured throughout Europe, including Turkey, Russia, Czechoslovakia and Poland. His present studio is in Bainbridge Island, Washington.
