Studio vase marked NSSG 194
« on: March 20, 2012, 09:25:31 PM »
My mum spotted this vase in a shop and took a photo of it on her phone (hence the poor photo's). The mark reads... NSSG194

The only thing i can find is New-Small & Sterling Glass Studio, based in Canada.

Just wondering if this is one of their pieces. Looks interesting from the photo.

They are also on Facebook TC, might be worth asking them if it's one of theirs.

New-Small has been blowing glass for over 30 years, which makes him one of Canada's pioneer glass blowers. His style has changed quite a bit over the years, so it's possible to find a wide range of pieces by him.  I don't recognize the piece in the photo, but there's a lot of his work I haven't seen.  I like his early work when Margo Thomson painted on the glass he blew. Here's a couple of pieces so you can get a taste  and so you'll now the piece in question isn't an early piece. I've attached a photo of the signature for you.

I'm sure you'd get a reply if you emailed him.

Gorgeous - is it all satin or just the blue foot?

David, I love the second vase and its Aboriginal theme.  A truly magnificant piece.  You are lucky to have it in your collection.
