Huge Vera Walther vase - show and tell
« on: July 23, 2012, 09:03:14 PM »
This is my third piece and therefore I have a collection :)
It's signed on the base and also has the label.  This work looks ethereal and delicate but it's sturdy and huge at 32cm high by 12-13cm diam at the base.
All engraved and with the most beautiful iridescence on the foot.

 :P - Whenever I look at it, it reminds me of both a snake charmer and a cobra bizarrely.

It looks as though the snake charmer swallowed the cobra  ;D

The innocent-looking little couple are really into dark magic...... and have been making a chimera.

bumping this for Ivo and Dirk hopefully (and anyone else interested)

I didn't do a picture of the base of this and today when I was clearing around I picked it up and lo and behold....it looks like it was made from a bottle - wondering if you know from whence the bottle might have come...and in effect is this recycled glass then?

I double checked an old link and these bottles are on there.  They are recycled and then 'painted with lustre' and decorated.  Used bottles which he produced for 10years.

Sorry, been away...  ;D
Indeed this range was made from old (beer) bottles and I think they date from the 80´s;
some examples are signed with date.
Funny enough - the name of the range was ´cobra´.   8)
