This circa 1994 signed Rick Satava vase has a traditional flared form that nips in at the shoulder and gives way to an everted rim trimmed in black. The piece has a mottled gold ground overlaid by caramel colored webbing with swirling King Tut detail having hints of blue. The piece features two large irises executed in shades of blue and green. The piece is signed just above the foot, reading "R Satava" and "4356-94".
The vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. It stands just over 10.5" to the rim and is 2" in diameter at the foot. The rim is 4" from edge to edge.
This stunning vase displays beautifully and would be a wonderful addition to a collection of fine art glass. A lovely piece!
A note on the maker:
Satava studied glassblowing at the College of San Mateo and California State University, Chico before opening his own Chico, California based studio in 1977. His work is sought after by collectors and was featured in the major motion picture, "Guardians of the Galaxy". Among his other accolades, Satava was named as one of the “30 Most Amazing Glass Artists Alive Today” in 2015.
