?? Who / What am I ?? (...and signed)
« on: January 07, 2012, 03:14:02 AM »
 :hi:  Not sure where to post this  :ho:  Is it a PW, or just and decorative item in a teardrop shape ??

large Glass item about 7 inches tall, and about 3 inches wide at the widest point.  It is signed on the bottom but I am not finding anything.  Looks like it says *Hiebert* to me.....with some letter in front??  Or maybe it says *Thiebert* too.  Not sure.   Funny, the writing is actually pretty neat but I am not finding anything...yet.  Will try some more...

Any ideas on if this IS a PW, or who the maker is?  I bought this before Xmas here at an Auction but only getting to posting it now.  thanks  :kissy:



Whew....Back to bed for me... :sick:

Thanks dirk for that link.....but when I read the description of her glass works (it kinda sounds like she does fused glass)  ????

So I am still wondering ???? about this, as I can not find any other examples of her work yet.  Name would fit perfectly that is for sure, but from the short description there ...... I am not convinced yet.

What do you think when you read about her work??

.............The thought runs threw my mind that this signed piece was signed by *a lady* as the writing looks much neater than some others.  Hate to stereo-type that idea......but just throwing it out there as a thought (IMHO) :spls:

Thanks Dirk!

I did some more digging around here and (I think) it might just be a real local person that might have did this work.  I found an Joan (and Al) Hiebert that seems to have some similar looking things on this link.  They call them water babies:

See this LINK-HERE

Where it is mentioned that their Glass studio is -- is maybe about 25 minutes drive away from me.  So I am thinking this might be just a local studio glass artist...but if so, it was a Lady.  So we were on the same wave length in thinking that.

I bet this other link *might* be the right lady? What do you think?  I may try to contact that Joan Hiebert to see IF she can ID this piece.  Then it would just be a local Studio glass item....but that is Okay!!
