HERES AN ORIGINAL VINTAGE 1950S OR 1960S SLUMP-GLASS / KILN-FIRED STUDIO ART GLASS BOWL IN THE SHAPE OF A FISH CREATED BY AMERICAN ARTIST EDWIN D. Measuring nine inches (9) in length, six and one quarter inches (6 1/4) in width at its widest point across the top, by one inch (1) in height at its highest point, Walter created what appears to be an abstract fish-shaped bowl made from clear slumped art glass with blue and white internal decoration for the fishs scales, eye pattern, and overall appearance. This bowl, which sits on three (3) small dimple feet, appears to have an open puckered mouth and small fan-shaped tail to create the form of the fish. Signed in the glass at the outer edge WALTER in the artists standard fashion. Beautiful condition no damage of any kind! Please Note: There are several naturally occurring air bubbles in the glass, which are original. Please scroll down to read the artist biography about Edwin Walter. Walter wrote an article titled Kiln-Formed Glass for the May 1959 issue of Ceramics Monthly magazine. In the 2+ page article, Walter provides several photographs and a step-by-step overview of his method for creating what he called sagged and laminated glass.

On page 37 of the same magazine, a photograph of Edwin D. Walter is presented along with the following text. Edward Walter started experimenting with glass sagging and lamination in 1951.

The first few attempts were enough to convince him that this was a craft that was going to receive a great deal of additional attention from him. He has been working with it ever since. Ed holds a masters degree in art and is dedicated to teaching. His initial work in glass was done while he was assistant professor of art at Oklahoma City University.

As he became more familiar with this new medium he included the subject in his advanced ceramic courses. In the fall of 1956 he took a teaching post at Florida State University, Tallahassee, where he is currently teaching ceramics and furthering his work in glass. He has had a number of exhibitions; his most extensive, entitled Glass and Man is currently being shown at the University Museum.
