BIG 1970s One of a Kind Handmade Fused Art Glass Abstract Modernist SCULPTURE - image 1 of 5

For sale here is a BIG vintage 1960s 70s one of a kind handmade fused art glass modernist sculpture. A gorgeous piece of 20th century modern art glass for display in the home! Lovely shades of blue and yellow and with an abstract figure at center in a tarnished bronze color. Rough and irregular outline and very wavy in parts that adds to it's sculptural charm. Would look great on a stand in a case, or laying flat on a coffee table! Fused glass is most often associated with Michal and Frances Higgins, but they were only among the most famous practitioners of the technique in their craft in the US. There were hundreds of artisans world-wide using the technique to make glorious examples of original art in glass for several decades in the mid to late 20th century. This fine plate is an exceptional example of the more sculptural variety of fused glass that was predominant later in the 1960s and 70s, and is also referred to as "kiln-formed" glass because it was shaped in the kiln at high temperatures. Measures 10" diameter by 1-1/2" deep at thickest point. Unsigned as far as I can see, but obviously a unique one of a kind artwork by a master glass craftsman! I'm guessing it's a fine example of American studio art glass. Perhaps had a sticker or gallery label originally, but the maker info no longer accompanies this artwork. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and original internal bubbles etc as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
