Flameworked and Pressed American Glass, Red Oak, Mixed Media
This piece features the historic vintage glass color “Chocolate”, a popular color in late 1800’s Pressed glassware. The compote is an original Greentown Glass company piece from c.1900. The fish is also a candy dish lid from the same company and time. Greentown Glass only produced wares from 1894 through 1903 when the factory was destroyed in a fire . The other featured pieces include the Nymph in her grotto with a butterfly , swan, duck , 7 hidden rabbit and shells I made on my new/old press. All of the other pieces I flamework myself.
