Fabulous, funky, chunky, fluid glass shapes- this is studio art glass. Made all over the world when abstraction met the atomic age in the arts scene in the 60s, each country seems to have produced this sort of art glass.
Highly in fashion in the 60s, totally out of fashion by the mid 70s- studio art glass is now back in fashion and very collectible. My partner has taken to collecting Australian pieces in a range of colours and then displaying them in colour groups. I admit I was sceptical at first- but the pieces do look fantastic when they are massed together.
Trish is collecting in reds/oranges and blues/greens – here are a few of her favourite things.
