Signed <i>Frances Higgins</i> Art Glass Vase
Lot # 272 - Signed Frances Higgins Art Glass Vase
American, (Riverside, IL) 20th century. An art glass drop-vase featuring a subtle ruffled rim's edge, an aqua interior with cascading vertical lines of blue, green and teal. The outside of the rim features vertical hanging shards of gilt and salmon colored glass, signed and dated, under lip, Frances Higgins / 1969; ht. 8 in., dia. 9 1/4 in.
Note: Frances Higgins was half of the Higgins Studio, founded by her and husband Michael in 1948. In many of their pieces,  they rediscovered and revived the ancient art of glass fusing, which, by mid-20th century, had been all but abandoned for glass-blowing. Fusing is a labor intensive process, essentially, a glass sandwich, on one piece of enamel-coated glass a design is created, with pieced with glass segments. Over this, another piece of enameled glass is laid. Placed on a mold, the object is heated and the glass “slumps” to the shape of the mold. The design itself is fused between the outer glass pieces, with additional layers often adding texture and color complexity. Higgins' work is collected by museums and in corporate collections.

1938 marked the beginning of the Naztlers' serious commitment to their craft. After winning the silver medal on March 11 of that year, the couple married in June and fled Vienna for Los Angeles in September, with the help of Otto's cousin. From 1938 to 1971, the year of Gertrud's death, the duo produced an increasingly notable body of work, with Gertrud as the potter and Otto as the glazer. Gertrud's forms were reminiscent of the Vienna Secessionist movement, while Otto perfected over 2,000 colors and styles of glazes. In 1999, Modernism Magazine declared that the Natzlers' work was "among the finest pottery of all time."
