Polish Angel, can anyone identify the signature please?
« on: March 14, 2011, 03:35:56 PM »
This is an art glass angel, etched and fused techniques....I think that's right!!
It is clearly signed, but I can't find out who it is by.....I was told it was made in Poland.
In one of the photos, you can see the scorched window sill I mentioned in a previous thread....so beware of putting glass orbs on the sills!!
Please can someone turn them for me....they have come out lying down!!

I had a wonderful holiday in Krakow a few years ago - stayed in the Hotel Alexander, (can't remember the name of the road it's in) there was an Art Glass shop in the same road, one of only two I found there (apart from Jablonski and lampwork animals and christmas tree baubles). I think the two shops I found were related - the other was in the main square.
 
I bought an orange-and-yellow-enamelled stripey cat in the shop for my brother's partner - it was of exactly the same sort of construction as your angel - flat base, upright slab of glass (both with cellulite texture), with etched marks to delineate features, artist signed.
Can't for the life of me remember the name of the artist - I gave the info. to the recipient, goodness only knows where it might be now!
Cheers, Sue (M)

Hi Rosie,
Your angel is Polish, by young designer Ida DąbrĂ³wka Huk.  You can see some of her work here:  http://galeriabb.com/bb/english/index.php?t=huk&m=huk

By the way, my husband read the signature for me.  He's a good fellow. :)

P.S. Sue, Ida also designed cats... http://www.tykwa.com/produkt.php?prod=156

Thanks, Anik. I thought it would be the same artist - and I hoped you'd pop in and be able to help out!
The stripey cat I bought was very like that - with a lovely smile!

Anik, you are an ANGEL!!  :angel:  :kissy: :girlcheer: :kissy: :girlcheer:
Thank you so much!!

And there was my Angel in the window of the shop in your link!! Hey! that was so wonderful, to get an ID so quickly!
I have quite a nice little collection of Angels now.....and I love this one!

But I do wish one of the moderators would turn her the right way up for me....who is on 'wonky picture' duty today????

Sue, I would have bought the pussy cat if I had seen it too!!

Christine...... :usd: !!! Bonkers!

Rosie, she's now the right way up. And I'll move this over to Glass Resolved as Poland isn't covered by the Czech/Bohemia forum.

If we're a bit slow with Mod stuff please be patient as we're a bit short-handed at the moment.

Ah, but Rosie, I wasn't familiar with the work... You mentioned 'Polish', so I took a look at the signature, saw the 'ą' letter, and asked my husband to read the rest of the scribble.  I've never heard of Ida DąbrĂ³wka Huk. 

I'm not particularly fond of her pieces, or of any of the pieces in the gallery... I always thought these things were imported from China.
:-[


But I'm glad you are pleased, and I'm pleased your piece has been ID'd.  :kissy:
