    Found this cruising an antique store. It was sitting out of place on a shelf and caught my eye. The tag read,"glass vase signed Marioni $64". I had the desk lady call the owner and ask if she'd take $50. She did. Engraved underneath it says,"Marioni 79 and a copywright symbol". So to my surprise after some research, it ends up being a Paul Marioni studio piece. Kinda makes sense since I live only 3 hrs from Seattle.
    I'm still searching for the title of this artwork. Any information on this vase would be appreciated.

    Here's some great info. from Wikipedia and other sources. There's plenty more on the web if your interested.

    Paul Marioni (b. 1941 Cincinnati, Ohio) [1] is an American artist who works in the medium of glass. Marioni graduated in 1967 from the University of Cincinnati, and is a Fellow of the American Crafts Council. He has received three fellowships from the National Endowment of the Arts. He has taught at the Penland School of Crafts and at the Pilchuck Glass School.[2] Paul Marioni has a son, Dante, who is also a glassblower, and in 1998, the two of them presented a feature exhibition of their glass at the Fresno Art Museum in California.

    About his work:

    His work is about human nature and is often inspired by his dreams.[4] Known as an innovator in the glass world, Marioni pushes his techniques to their limits, regularly redefining what is possible to achieve with the medium. “I work with glass for its distinct ability to capture and manipulate light. While my techniques are often inventive, they are only in service of the image,” says Paul.

    And so on....
