Chris Heilman Wisteria in Vessel or Vase 2014. He is well known for his gorgeous and unique floral and marine designs. Chris died unexpectedly this spring and will be missed by the glass community.This is a superb piece, and it is Chris at his best. Chris referred to this unique shape as a vessel and it is comprised of magnificent and beautifully formed purple wisteria which wind across the glass, interspersed with leaves and vine.
Beneath at the bottom are sunflowers and what could be mauve roses or poppies. Most unusual is the double effect of globe within globe, adding to the intricacy of the design within.The insert globe is a stunning translucent cobalt blue as the photos show. The piece is magnum in size, approximately 5 and 1/4 inches in height and approximately 5 inches across at its widest point. It is also extremely heavy and will require secure and careful packing.
Chris' best works are these unusually large nature designs. This one is hand signed and etched Wisteria near its base. It was produced in 2014 as a series of Wisteria vessels, each with different inner colors for contrast.
Each is unique in color combinations and shape and therefore can be considered one of a kind. This vessel is in perfect condition and was bought directly from him at his studio. It has 3'rubber' feet on its base for protection of the glass.
Because of its weight and insurable value, charges will be app. The item "Gorgeous Chris Heilman Blue Wisteria Vessel Vase 2014 Mint One of a Kind" is in sale since Wednesday, December 6, 2017.
