Start your art glass collection today and check out this amazing modern Nikolas Weinstein piece here.
This is Jennifer here with City Farmhouse Antiques and I am here with this week's Find of the Week. You will never believe what this this. We could play a game of name that artist. Anyway, many of you may not have ever seen a single piece of art glass that looks like this, but this is actually a piece from Nikolas Weinstein. He was born in New York in 1968 and has his studio in San Francisco, California and does beautiful hand blown art glass pieces. You can see that this vase is actually a deep, deep, dark, purple that goes up into more of a clear translucent color and has these fabulous little swirls at the ends of each tip. Maybe we can get a look down into the inside. These pieces are really contemporary and modern looking and as you look into the inside you can see the different colors and translucence of the piece.
As a child Nikolas enjoyed the Natural History Museum and was into oceanography so I don't know if maybe that is where some of these free forms come from in the shapes of his pieces because they almost look ocean like and posses such natural lines. This artist is also known for his commissioned work. Working for designers and home owners he has done suspended pieces for dining rooms and hotels in lobbies. He did a beautiful installation in China in a hotel lobby with a beautiful free form multi-glass presentation piece that flows suspended in mid air from the ceiling. His pieces are spectacular, and like I said his studio is in San Francisco and I believe he also has a studio in New York. This is a much smaller piece. You can see his pieces are very colorful and again, contemporary looking. This is almost like a handkerchief type shape and it goes from a creamy clear translucent color on the bottom to a beautiful teal and you can see the creases in the glass and how they hold that color. His style is just very different. All of his pieces are marked on the bottom. Here you can see this piece is signed and marked 1994 on the bottom.
I have been wanting to get this video up for a while to share these really cool pieces with you all, but I had no choice today because this vase is actually headed to California. It sold last night and is on its way to its new home. I'm glad I was able to share these exquisite art glass pieces before they left me.
