Nourot Glass Studio "C'ezanne" Mantle Bowl
Nourot Glass Studio enters into the fourth decade making handmade blown glass. The Nourot Studio was established in 1973 in San Francisco, and soon after Michael moved to Benicia, California with his new partner and wife Ann Corcoran. His collections include series work, and one-of-a-kind art.
Nourot Glass Studio produces the Bowl in the striking C'ezanne pattern. Paul C'ezanne was a late 19th Century painter of great renown. Solidity and broad strokes define C'ezanne's style. Each piece of the C'ezanne pattern begins with a layer of orange-red glass, over this is placed the "strokes" of heavy colors, lavender, purple, orange, cobalts, copper, over white. This bowl is spectacular for a center piece on a table, allowing the delicious red center to be enjoyed from afar. The black base and lip wrap contrasts the striking white, and leads the eye to the deep red that is the crown of the vase.
All Nourot Studio glass pieces are signed and registered by the same method since the studio began: studio,series letters, piece number, year and artist't initials.
