Two Blue Eggs by Unknown Artist

These two beautiful blue glass eggs are a delight for display at Easter or any time of the year. One is speckled with a blue and white almost crystalline design looking rather like snowflakes or florets as though it were enamelled over a clear body.  The other has a large bubble piercing through a cobalt blue splash that swirls inside with bubbling to the blue creating internal nodules. Although they are not signed I was assured that they are Australian and indeed I have seen this style of work before however for the life of me I can not remember the artist either.

Window Weight by Unknown Artist

This is a spectacular Chinese made paper weight with a blue and clear jelly fish at the core consisting of a mass of tiny bubbles then a gather of clear glass is added. A black layer with gold flecks is applied before a final thick layer of clear. After the piece has been annealed a facet is cut on one side which is then polished to reveal the design within. The bottom is also ground and polished so that when placed on a light base it glows with a multitude of colours; a true triumph for the artist. My only wish is that the Chinese  artisans making such superb pieces would sign their work.

Two Glass Compote Dishes by Unknown Artist

These very pretty dishes one in ruby red and the other in a port wine colour are made by slumping the glass in a mould using a furnace or kiln. Then they are hand painted before firing one more time.  Next the pieces are assembled with copper tubing for the stem plus a red glass tile for the base.  I am confident although not signed they are Australian in origin possibly from the Hunter Valley.  If anyone knows the artist please leave a comment and I will follow it up.

Letter Opener with Glass Beads by Chinese artist

This pretty letter opener is made using three glass beads to form the grip. The beads are made of dichroic glass on a steel rod coated with a release agent so they slip off when cooled. Made in shades of red with copper flecks that sparkle with the light they are then removed from the rod and  added to the shaft with spacers between and finished with a finial.

This very pretty little vase is reported to be made by Newt Glass in the United States however it has now been brought to my attention that this piece is in fact not made by Newt Glass in America but more likely made in Europe signed Newt.  If anyone knows of it’s maker please let me know via the comments on this post thank you. This piece is of a lovely sky blue with a modern abstract design on two sides in black, white and an orange yellow.
