It's a very interesting example of a symbiotic relationship between two artists and I can't think of any other area of the fine arts where this happens  ;)

Yes, I do agree - but how often does the glassmaker get the credit they deserve for it?

It's always the engraver - the cold glass artist. The one who draws lines on it.

Not the one who battles to work with and control huge weights of 1000 degree celcius molten syrup!

Absolutely !

The last thing (I would imagine) a glass artist would be thinking about , whilst grappling with molten glass syrup , is a symbiotic relationship with a glass engraver .   :)

In Peter Dreiser's book it would have been really informative to know who created the form and colour of his work.

I love the engraved piece - thanks for sharing :)

I agree with the recent comments - I like to know who made the blank and who decorated the glass.

For more recent contemporary glass, the blower and and the decorator are now usually credited.

I have to say though, I am finding the more interesting antique pieces I'm researching are the ones where I have two lines of enquiry :) i.e. the decorator and the maker of the blank.

Thanks Barry, ever so much, for posting a pic. of the M D vase ! So it was the clear sections she engraved . It looks really beautiful !

I found a link to a photo of 'The Price of Oil' so I thought I would post it here for reference as it was mentioned above.

Barry was 'Acid Rain' , Peter Dreiser, also one of your vases, it's on page 93 of Techniques of Glass Engraving (2nd edn.) Dreiser & Matcham ?

Sue , I couldn't agree more , it's gorgeous ! 

Cheers, Mike.

Barry thanks so much for posting the link to your glass!  Fabulous to see all the pieces.
I've linked to the Price of Oil from your link on your photos, as it is a bigger size pic so folks can see the shape and colours and the engraving more clearly.

And if you're already in that link, you can just use the arrows to see everything else nice and big too! :)

Barry, ebay isn't what it was, it's gone seriously greedy with excessive charges, and folk are not buying with the recession.
I don't even look, these days.  :'(

Cheers, Sue (M)

I think you put a wrong link in by accident Wolkenreb?

Barry, the board is a mixed board and from what I see it comprises people who are interested in and love glass.  Many are collectors, some are dealers, some collect and have to sell as well otherwise they'd not be able to continue collecting (me :)  ).  But all contribute to the board knowledge in various ways and to the good of glass reference/accurate history (at least in my opinion). 

Glass on ebay finds it's current price the same as any auction.  If two people want something badly it will sell well.  If only one person wants it and the start price isn't very high, then it will sell for the base start price.  That is the way of an auction I guess.

It also goes in and out of fashion and desirability very quickly from what I can see.  And in order for something to be desirable to many, many must know about it.  That's why marketing is so important :)
