SIGNED DE FLUTE NEW ZEALAND STUDIO ART GLASS BOWL RON VAN DE VLUGT. SUPERB EXAMPLE OF NEW ZEALAND HANDBLOWN ART GLASS.Presenting a stunning handcrafted hot glass bowl masterfully handcrafted and signed by Ron van de Vlugt, founder of the now extinct Rotorua-based glass studio De Flute. This superb shallow bowl has a sleek modernist form which has been beautifully coloured with dense mottles of rich and radiant purple encased within. The random purple mottles perfectly follow the sleek contour of the form adding a fabulous sense of movement to the design and documenting the flow of the glass as it was crafted into shape. This wide flared piece stands proudly atop a squat applied clear glass foot which beautifully elevates the form allowing the light to illuminate the vibrant glass from every angle.
This piece looks exceptionally attractive with light reflecting through the vibrant glass to intensify the colour and cast gorgeous reflections. This piece is presented in good vintage condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and just a few incredibly light surface scratches noticeable only on extremely close examination but mentioned for complete accuracy.
This piece presents exceptionally well. This piece is beautifully signed to the base with an engraved signature "De Flute NZ". This impressive piece measures approx 255mms in diameter and stands 55mms tall.
