This beautiful piece is signed Fiske N 52 . It is a very heavy piece , weighing a bit more than one pound .
I am trying to research this artist and found one reference to hhim working with Murano .
I have been collecting for 50+ years and this is my first Fiske piece .
The finish looks like oil on water with its swirling rainbows and brilliant color . The irridescense is slightly raised and can be felt on the surface .
Any help with this artisan would be appreciated .
Thank you ,
Mystery

    This looks like a piece by Kent Fiske. He worked primarily in Colorado in the 1970's and 1980's and I believe into the early 90's.

    Kent began glassblowing the same day I did, at UCLA in 1973. The difference is that he had a talent and a gift, where I did not. His early cast-offs were better than my best, and he kindly cast some off to me for which I am grateful. I suggest that fans of Kent should look at the work of Siddy Langley, a wonderful English glassblower.
