Currently my collections include some Loetz and other Bohemian glass, Imperial Art Glass from 1923-26, French ceramics from the late 19th Century through 1930 or so, German "Fat Lava", German post WWII studio ceramics, some mid-2oth Century American pots (Scheier, Beatrice Wood, Wildenhain/s, etc), Taxile Doat, George Ohr, Patrick Nordstrom, Libbey Glass, Ohio Potteries, Fulper, etc, etc. I believe I have a "good eye" but I am not an expert in most of what I collect. My thinking is to share pictures from my collection and relate whatever I do know about the objects - with the hope that, from time to time, other more knowledgeable collectors can add to the "conversation".

  16. Deb Do you think the "sequence" might have been: Opal glass gather cased in a crystal layer, this then rolled in red frit, then in gold, vase formed, interior fumed and then "lava" added.
  17. Thanks much Deb. You think the orange -pink is actually the "sunset" color that took 8 years to perfect?
