ITEM This spectacular work is of Czech Modernist art glass is a celebration of handblown sixties studio glass.
The accentuated abstract bottle form features a tapered neck that is lightly ridged, creating downward darts in the bands of orange around it. The neck leads into the globe body with the bands of orange widening outwards as the body's circumference extends. Each band wavy striped band of orange features a shade of semi-translucent shade of Peach orange that is sandwiched between a trim of transparent Tangerine orange. As the bands graduate towards the base of the vase, the hues of orange deepen, giving this piece a wonderful sense of gradience.
This simple yet refined piece is a rare find that gives a mesmerising light show of refractions when placed in the path of sunlight.
CONDITION Superb. There is light use wear, primarily in the form of mild watermarks on the interior of the vase. Mentioned for completeness: due to the narrowness of the neck, the vase can sometimes collect condensation on the interior, which comes and goes as temperatures fluctuate. Please refer to photos as they form part of the condition report.
