Good evening to all, I bought this vase about 7 years ago from a secondhand shop & have been unable to id
the piece is signed on three corners on the base, but i can only make out what one is, (Australia) the other two
i have no idea except at the end of another is the number 40.  approximatly 4 inches high.
I would welcome any info thanks in advance.

Ooh I am so jealous!  That is Chris Pantano Dreamtime vase - and a nice one at that.  Most of them are dark background. so this is a surprise to me.  The stick figures represent certain types of aboriginal art.

It looks like Graal work - should be worth a pretty penny indeed, Graal is difficult and requires a high level of skill - quite apart from being a fabby thing to own.

Chris Pantano worked in Montville Queensland for many years.  I consider him to be one of the best artists because he created series of magnificent themed glass.  Dreamtime(yours), Rainforest, Reef, Desert, etc.  These designs have been copied by a great many other artists and still are.  His studio is now closed and I am not clear whether he is still working in glass.

Tour first photo has his signature and the third says Australia the second I could not make out.
