For your consideration, a rare iridescent oxide art glass vase by the noted glass artist Jim Smircich, signed “Smircich 1983”. The vase features artful bands of silver oxide chocolate and faun brown, and iridescent purple. The work is in excellent condition with no chips or nicks, and measures 7” tall and is 6” in diameter. Smircich’s present glass blowing is mostly directed to the production of polychrome glass beads, and his vases are rather rare. This artful late 20th century work is from his early period of production, and highly collectable.
