This is an absolutely gorgeous example of American 20C Studio Art Glass from Vandermark, ca. '80s.
Remarkable mastery of varying techniques are present in this wonderfully handblown floral fantasy. Cased, pulled, & cut colored cane+ grape cluster motif are all suspended in clear blown glass of distinct clarity & transformative light quality. I've not before encountered another piece of this complexity from Vandermark.It is quite unusual.
This hefty paperweight-form fantasy is in perfect original condition-signed & numbered on the base.
Note- The small multicolored light 'veil'-seen against the cobalt core in some images-is actually a Christmas tree light reflection from across the room-& is not an element of the artisan's inclusion.
