Two Small Ink Bottles by Unknown Artist

These two ink bottles are possibly made by the same artist as they are similar in design and size. One is in a beautiful cobalt blue while the other has a mottled design in black over clear. Unfortunately they are both unsigned however I am confident that they are Australian made perhaps as end of day work or that of students.

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.

Flower Vase by Unknown Artist

A beautiful six petal flower is in shades of pink and blue crafted into a vase although it would be a shame to put anything in it as it would cover up the delicate colours within this piece. At this stage I have not been able to find any signs of a signature however it is well executed from a competent artist and stands without any rocking .

Tall Grecian Urn Vase by Unknown Artist

A wonderful vase in the classical shape of a Grecian urn made in clear glass with large mottling in a rich chocolate brown that has a beautiful opaline surrounding that creates a very subtle halo effect. This piece is hand made in Australia as a label indicated however unfortunately it is not signed by the artist.

Butterfly and Orchid Perfume Bottle made by Unknown Artist

This is a heavy solidly made perfume bottle with a butterfly design in the stopper and orchids with leaves in the body of the bottle. The orchid design is created using millefiori while the butterfly is made using colourful cane slices in the clear glass. It is a well made piece of glass showing great skill that the Chinese artist who created it possesses.

Unusual Sculpture by Unknown Artist

This is a very unusual and modern art sculpture crafted by folding and layering the glass and incorporating blue chips of glass with silver foil or powder plus the uncommon addition of copper threads between the layers. The back layer is  frosted while only half of the middle layer is frosted and the other half is left  glossy as is the front layer giving this item more depth than is expected with a work that is only three and a half centimetres thick. This sculpture is not signed so I will have to wait and see if the artist or someone else recognises the work.
