Small Horse Petroglyph

Art Glass Vase

(ID: A16028)
The primitive horse design on this blown glass vase was inspired by the running horse petroglyphs drawn in Lascaux Cave, France, circa 15000 BC. The rich gold color of the background is created by layering and interfacing several colors of glass powder, frit, and stringer. The horse images are "drawn" in powdered glass on a steel plate and gently heated from beneath. Once the background colors of the piece have been established, the glass is blown into a cylindrical shape and rolled over the powdered images of the horse. The warm powder images embed into the surface of the hot glass creating a softly textured finished piece. The final step is to iridize the surface with a technique adopted from the studios of the early 1900's.

      Comments about Small Horse Petroglyph:

      Because the technique used is intended to evoke primitive cave art the images of the horses are not precisely rendered. You'll need to appreciate the roughness of the drawings. The color is a nice yellow that glows a soft gold in my display cabinet. The swirl of random sized yellow, orange, and brown glass chips and grit animate the piece so that you can almost hear the galloping. A very good value for a substantial piece. I'm not sure why it's called "small."

      Watched this item in catalog for almost a year before purchased for me as a gift.It is truley beautiful. It seemed larger than I thought it would be, maybe because it was called "small horse" but size was fine. We get many compliments on it and it is on prominent display in our living room. Shipping was fast and packaging was safe and secure.

        Comments about Small Horse Petroglyph:

        Don't hesitate to buy this beautiful vase. The colors are beautiful and the craftsmenship is extremely good. I was greatly pleased that the design is on both sides of the vase. I have it displayed on an open shelf bookcase that acts as a room divider. I love the artistic execution based on original drawings that are over 10,000 years old. Thank You so much!!!
