    Blue Quart Milk Vase
    with gold leaf and multi colored fused forms.

    Took me a while to figure out signature but solved it on my own ;)
    Found this piece in a new secret place I have been hunting for a while ;)
    and I'm not telling where.

    20th century American glass artist, Kerry Feldman

    Online info;

    Kerry Feldman is a Breckenridge resident with a love for communicating man's spirit through beautiful blown-glass forms.
    His first taste of working with blown glass came in pursuit of a degree at California State University. He was instantly hooked.
    This weekend and next, Feldman's last available pieces are for sale and on display in his hometown gallery, Art on a Whim. Feldman's show features more than a dozen beautiful creations in hand-blown glass, representing a career spanning more than 30 years.
    In 1991, Feldman moved to Breckenridge and opened the world's highest molten-glass studio. Blowing glass at high altitude comes with a multitude of challenges, each of which Feldman was ready to tackle.
    High altitude means high pressure, but Feldman said, "Blowing glass allows me to step away and connect with the substance that is below my conscious thought. It is very soothing."
    Feldman's work ranges from functional to completely sculptural. His designs incorporate the rich historical techniques of the Swedish and Venetian glass-making traditions. The use of pure gold and silver leaf makes his work pop. Stunning decorative surfaces are achieved by applying multiple color canes over fields of the gold or silver leaf, creating dimensional forms, which appear to float on the glass. Much of Feldman's design work features faces or ladders, features that speak to our relationship with heaven and earth.
    Feldman still resides in Breckenridge; during his career as a glass blower his work has been collected by museums throughout the world.
    Permanent collections include the New York Jewish Museum in New York City, The Skirball Museum in Los Angeles, the Joods Historisch Museum in Amsterdam, Holland, and the Judische Museum in Frankfurt, Germany. Each collection distinguishes the career of an artist who is no longer plying his trade.
