Lately, I have despaired of finding the kind of pieces needed to "awe the bourgeoisie", so I have decided to go after the truly bizarre. and what can be more so than this bowl? It stands 4.5 tall and 5" wide. Opaque glass with a zigzag pattern in orange/amber frit. But what I find amazing is that the cording and the three feet are made out of one continuous green filament of glass! I must admit what really caught my eye was the second picture, which in the listing was first. I could not "process" the shape of it upside down!

    Interesting Alfredo! I love it.

    Very playful. That's a glassmaker having fun right there.

    It so happened I got both bizarre bowls right after I had posted the pictures . The height is correct, but it measures only 3.5 top diameter. What I thought was a continuous filament is really 2. The applied cording comes to rest on one of the legs
    and is fused to it. The mouth does not show signs of abrasion, as if it had had a cover. Base glass is clear with both silver-white and amber frit.

    I have removed the first picture and added one at the end, showing the exact juncture of threading and feet.

    Is this a Kralik design-shift of Loetz "Octopus"?
    Leah is right about these two, Alfredo!

    It reminds me of a sea urchin resting among seaweed. Very modern and simultaneously organic!

    You mean an urchin shell, like my Kralik bowl. it's amazing: pieces of glass that set off the viewers' imaginations!
  8. Alfredo Alfredo, 4 years ago
    I think Octopus is far more complex in manufacturing technique. And this bowl does not resemble it at all.
