Sterling Silver and “Antique” Glass Pitcher or Bud Vase
This unique and completely hand crafted pitcher by Israeli glass and silver worker Sherman is made of hand blown “antique” glass set into a sculpted sterling silver waist band, capped by a sterling handle and rim. The glass blowing process leaves the glass textured and striated, rich in tone. Color of the glass ranges from greens to olive greens. The sculpting process used on the sterling silver adds dimensionality and texture as well, and is further decorated with ancient Aramaic lettering. Artist imprint on the sculpted silver.
Materials: sterling silver, glass
Size: 6 1/2″ tall
Meet the Artist: Sherman Art Works
Sherman Art Works is a family business at work for decades, the last 20 years making their creations in Israel, all strictly by hand. The artists hand make the glass using complicated Murano glass blowing technologies and methods and they also use glass fusing techniques. Their skills help them to create products of the highest possible standard. Once the glass is blown, the artists coat the glass with silver art work also sculpted by hand.Learn More
