I really love Peill & Putzler vase designs, especially the ones from the 60s-70s, but even the later ones strike a chord. I've already made up my mind this year to make P&P one of my specialized areas of glass collecting, spending a little more than usual to pick up the better ones.
I'm especially happy with the relatively newly acquired textured vase on the right of the middle picture (I suspect it's by Horst TÃ¼selmann). No picture manages to do it justice (making it a very positive surpise when it arrived, as I hadn't seen it 'live'). It's a thickwalled vase, and the pattern is made by very deep etching (I think), making little canyons deep in the surface giving it it's pattern effect. It's an extremely tactile piece. When I just bought it, every time I walked past it, I had to 'caress' it to feel the tectile structure of it. I'm sooo happy with that one! :smg:
