|Sorry -sold. Small flat vase with murrini|
This wonderfully colourful and creative vase has millefiore mosaic pieces set into cobalt blue glass, and a red applied rim. You will love its disc-like shape, round when viewed from the front, but only 3.5" from front to back. It will sit comfortably on quite a narrow shelf or windowledge. It measures 9" across and 8" high. Signed "Nash'97".
|Blue Vase with Murrini|
This large cobalt blue flattened circular vase has a superb band of colored millefiori mosaics around it like a collar. It is a large piece, 11.7" tall and 13" wide, but only 5.2" from front to back, so it will sit on quite a narrow ledge. A very easy piece to display superbly well. Signed "G. Nash '96" price: $690.00.
|Etched and Engraved Platters|
This sand-plasted cobalt blue platter was blown from cased glass (blue over clear) by Garry, who then diamond wheel engraved his distinctive "Nash" pattern around the edge, cutting through the top layer to reveal the underlying clear glass. It is 14.2" across and signed "G. Nash '94" price $750.00.
|Pink etched & engraved platter|
This is a very large sand-blasted platter in a delicate pink over clear glass. Hand blowing a vessel this size in cased glass requires all the master glass-blower's skill. Diamond wheel intaglio engraving around the edge, cuts through the top layer to reveal the underlying clear glass in Garry's distinctive design. It measures a massive 21" across and is signed "G. Nash '93". A truly wonderful coffee table piece, price $990.00.
|Dark blue with gold and silver foil inserts|
In the 1990's Garry made a series of large vases with gold and silver leaf decoration. Very fine gold leaf and silver leaf was floated onto the surface of the molten glass, and the piece was then blown larger, so that the leaf broke into a mosaic of tiny pieces. This large dark blue vase with gold and silver leaf is signed "G. Nash '93" and is 10.5 inches tall. Price: $790.00.
|"Bill Poster Series: The Environment"|
Garry's major early innovation was his "bill poster" series of large vessel-form free-blown sculptures with "torn poster" images on the surface. These took the world by storm, with major exhibitions in the USA, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. In 1986 Garry wrote: "People look to artists, writers and craftspersons of a generation to sum up and record the achievements of their era. In this way, I see my images, and forms, as being a reflection of my time, like the school photo, the family portrait, the sports team photograph..... I have elected to use the concept of the "bill poster" as a means of expressing my observations". This vessel, called "Environment" represents the buildings and places we surround our lives with. Signed "G.Nash '87" height 22.5" Price: $4900.00.
