notes

The rare Pennellate series was executed by applying small quantities of colored opaque glass to the vessel as it was blown. The colors were then spun gently around the viscous glass exterior, achieving spiraling bands of expressive brush strokes. The present example appears to be an early experiment of this original technique due to its irregular form and the somehow raw style of the brush stroke. This important example offers an insight on the early stages of the creation of this rare series.
