Glass pear signed OM 1992. ID = Ogishi-Mizuno studio, Australia
« on: September 26, 2009, 04:12:47 PM »
Nice quality and weight to this pear, the base is ground and polished though only enough for it to sit flat and it is 10cm/4 inches tall. Looks like it is signed DM 1992.

Does any one recognise the maker and/or the the signature?

Thanks.

John

Is there a moderator lurking in the GMB shadows? I think I should have posted this item in paperweights. Can you wave your electronic magic wand and make it move?

Thanks.

John

This paperweight is signed OM and made by the noted Australian glass artist Setsuko Ogishi at her Ogishi-Mizuno studio at Rothbury in the Hunter Valley north of Sydney. See the two examples below of the signature and a sticker from the studio. She has an extensive website here.

There is a similar apple paperweight on the website of an Australian collector here. It doesn't show the signature, but that collector lives in the Hunter Valley and knows his Ogishi (and other) glass.

I note that this solution is 5 years and 80 days after the original query was posted. That is a new personal best for me, up from my previous record of 4 years and 354 days, seen here.

I hadn't looked before for stray Australian studio glass in the Paperweights section of the GMB. Who knows what else I may find?

I am nominating you for the 2014 GMB "We don't give up!" award, Trevor. ;D

Absolutely! Thank you Trevor.

I am not certain what happened to this one but I think a friend may have it, in which case I will be able to pass on the information.

John
