Axehead Flask by Unknown Artist

An axehead flask or vase with a clear body looking almost like ice it has a delicate design of orange and yellow with smoky white and shrouding the upper area of the piece.  There is also a veil of small bubbles within the clear plus some larger ones that add interest. The signature is an impressed seal which unfortunately I do not recognise at this time so I am forced to add it to the unknown section however I suspect that it is a Mdina glass piece.

This stunning pumpkin flower is truly a work of art created by well known glass artist Jack Pine in his studio at Columbus Ohio. Jack is best known for his pumpkins and gourds but he also makes other objects including humming bird feeders. This flower measures fourteen inches long and seven inches across at the widest point. It has a beautiful lilac colour on the inside plus a white and lilac mottling to the outside with golden ribs and a black rim to the edge before being coated in a soft pearl finish.  The stem which coils like a spring is in the most glorious gold finish. This piece is an impressive sculptural decorator item or can be used as a centrepiece on a table.
