Vilniaus Stiklo Studija Vase signed by Who?
« on: October 18, 2018, 06:26:11 AM »
I need help figuring out anything about this vase and especially who the artist is.  The signature is on the bottom but I can't figure out the name.  I've looked everywhere for information and come up with nothing.  Please help me with this.

 :) I've had a peek in the catalogue, given I've bought Lithuanian glass in the past but found very little out about it. I do have something with a label with the name Stiklart on it - a large and very decorative fish with soft brassy metal bits sculpted and attached (more Romanian than Lithuanian-looking)

I've found a name in the catalogue that might be what is written on the bottom of this vase.  ;D

V. Gibovskis.
I can see the V. The rest might be the capital letter G around it, to give it its own style.
Cheers, Sue (M)

I noticed that name too but I would still be inclined to email them direct.

Absolutely, Ross.  :)
Me having a guess isn't any form of confirmation.
I'm going to be digging around that site you posted, for which I'm very grateful.
Unfortunately the Lithuanian glass I bought was around '04, a lot earlier than this studio seems to be, according to that.

It was imported by a small business concentrating on new, quality, Eastern European goods. He couldn't tell me anything about the artists.
He did provide me with sticky plastic import labels and little cardboard certificates of authenticity which state that the glass is Vilniaus Stiklo Studija in Vilniaus, Lithuania.
So I suspect the studio might be older that its website says it is?
His import business, Baltic Impressions International, was established in '96.
I don't know if he's still going or not. I do know he moved in the later '00s.
None of my pieces were signed.
Cheers, Sue (M)

The studio does seem to date from pre-millennium - see another signed bowl example from 1997 here
https://picclick.com/Vilniaus-Stiklo-Studija-Contemporary-Art-Glass-Bowl-Lithuania-123391449295.html

Quote
Large, modernist charcoal grey with white stripes art glass bowl, made by Vilniaus Stiklo Studija in Lithuania.
The bowl is signed A. Zilys (Algimantas Zilys) 97' and still bears the original Vilniaus Stiklo Studija sticker.
It measures~ 10 1/4"tall x 6" wide.
The vase is in excellent condition. 

About the artist ( from Colector weekly).
Algimantas Žilys, probably one of the the most famous (and one of the rare) glass artists of Lithuania who worked very much in the bohemian glass art tradition and did some beautiful pieces. He lived from 1936 to 2009 and graduated from Kaunas Art School, State Art Institute (now Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts). He is presented on a page about applied arts in Lithuania:
Zilys studied art glass in school and has been designing and creating glass art for decades.
His work is a great experience and an awareness of European glass blowing tradition.
All Zilys’ pieces are made completely by hand, including the glass and the colors, which he mixes from raw materials.

You can get all that from the link?
It's probably my ancient pc, but all I get is a ton of images and small print stuff, I can't get any further.
Michael apparently did buy a new pc. He can't get it set up and it got shoved in a cupboard.
We're not upgrading. We can't cope with it. You've got all the pokey sticks, Anne ;)

However, one of the images is exactly the same as the original vase posted. The same picture, not just the same vase. So I don't know if the poster owns the photos and has the copyright or not.
Cheers, Sue (M)

PicClick is a feed from ebay and each image links to an item on ebay, Sue. When you click on the image it opens a new page with the extra info on it.

Thanks, Anne. These days I just don't know which clicks are safe and which aren't. ::) It looked horribly like the pin thing mixed up with amazon sales. I don't use either.
My default setting is; "don't click on things".

The original vase image posted is still on it.
So we still don't know who owns the images.
Cheers, Sue (M)

I've tracked down the thread i started on the stuff I bought. Unfortunately, the pics are sort of vanished. They were on tinypic which went awol, then on photobucket which messes my pc up now. I don't have the originals, and I don't even have all the glass now. I've still got the cats and the "roots" vase, and a wonderful big red bowl.
A friend got the bubbly one. She loved it even more than I did. :)
