Here is another find from a thrift in San Diego Cal area. I immediately knew what it was and swooped it up!
Mats Jonasson, born in 1945. He's the third generation master glass craftsmen from Målerås, Sweden. World famous for his crystal sculptures, this particular one being from his wildlife series. It goes right along with the deer I previously posted. This piece is signed on the bottom although the sticker has been removed. His pieces are still manufactured in Maleras, Sweden and if there are any blems what-so-ever, they toss it out. It will never see the light so to say. You will always find quality sculptures from the small to the large. Awesome pieces.
When I took these photos it was just about dusk and there was no light on in the room! It's like his pieces grab whatever light there is and it just shoots right thru the piece. The second photo is from the back side of it and the last photo was taken just as the day was done. It still grabs the light!
