Measuring 11” tall and 3 ¼” wide this early 1970’s art glass vase is identified with “W. Worcester” “Hawaii” “71” in the maker’s hand. This piece dates to the earliest period of Worcester’s glass blowing, and was most probably created at “The Foundry” in Honolulu, under the tutelage of Hugh Jenkins. Its tapered neck is lyrical and reminiscent of the Aladdin shaped studio glass of the Greek and Roman period in its pure organic form and a feeling of internal movement and its controlled and “stretched” internal bubbles. The color is blue a pure blue-gray with a darkening of its glass at its base. 1960’-70’s American studio art glass from the Hawaiian Islands is very rare and this fine piece is noteworthy for both its aesthetics and craftsmanship. In great vintage condition with no chips.
