Rainbow of colors...vase/bowl/sculpture, What is it?
« on: April 12, 2014, 11:40:50 AM »
This piece was purchased at an estate sale in Hendersonville, North Carolina (USA).

It is signed on the middle of the pontil and is very difficult to photograph even with  applied powder.

5" inches tall (12cm), 7"inches wide (18cm), 4"inches deep (10cm)

Any information, comments, etc... would be most welcome.

Thank you for looking,

Tony

Very similar to the style of Neal Drobnis, as seen here...http://chasengalleries.com/drobnis/index.html

Signatures do not match, and could not email/contact successfully to inquire about the piece in question.

wild guess: signature looks somehow hebraic - Israel ?  :-X

That signature suffers from parts being lost in the highly coloured background.  I suggest taking another shot from a very shallow angle which leaves the signature dark and the surface appears whitish.  The pattern does not come into it at all.  A couple of photos to illustrate what I mean.

As many pictures that I have posted it seems for some reason resizing these is just not working. If I could email them to some one perhaps they could give it a try.
Thanks,
Tony

Tony the "Photo 1" is starting to be what I suggested but you still see way too much of the underlying pattern.  You can shoot at a much shallower angle still so it disappears.  Note min the two shots I posted the second you can't see the pattern at all - no distraction for the eyes,
