Overall in excellent condition. A dynamic twisted form exemplifying the artist’s studio glassmaking practice. The glass with minute air bubbles and particulate inclusions inherent in the making and not visually distracting. The glass surfaces present with some very light scuffing and faint scattered scratches consistent with gentle handling. The upper edge of the larger element with an extremely small chip, only visible upon close inspection. This lot is offered together with a lacquered wood base and protective rubber coaster.
