Offered is a vintage Steven Maslach clear dichroic studio glass perfume bottle. Because of a dichroic glass base, the bottle has iridescent accents that change colors in different light and angles. The bottle has a stopper, which resembles an iceberg, and appears to be rough cut free form edges, although it is smooth to the touch. The bottle is approximately 5 ½ "tall, including the stopper x 3 ½ "wide, signed and dated 1993 on the base as shown, and in excellent condition, with; no chips, scuffs, or repairs noted. Born in 1950 in San Francisco, California, Steven Maslach currently lives and works on Bainbridge Island, Washington. Maslach studied under Marvin Lipofsky and Sam Herman while attending California College of Arts and Crafts and founded his glass studio in 1971. Maslach is a significant contemporary glass artist. He is well-respected in the art glass community and has served on the Boards of the American Craft Council and the Glass Art Society. His work, known for its elegant form and rich color, is highly valued. Maslach was the first to use dichroic glass, which changes colors under different lighting conditions and viewing angles, in the decorative arts beginning in the late 1970s. Used to protect its astronauts and spacecraft sensors from the harsh rays of unfiltered sunlight and radiation, NASA revitalized the production of dichroic glass in the 1950s and 1960s. Inventive and ever-changing, Maslach’s work may combine blown and cast glass, steel, copper, and stone. Color may be a fluid color inclusion or the reflected purity of dichroic color filters. His work is found in many museums, including the Corning Museum of Glass, the Smithsonian Institute, the Chrysler Museum of Art (Norfolk, Virginia), the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the American Craft Museum.
