Offered is a round Michael Nourot blown red glass perfume bottle with gold leaf and blue-gray details and a black glass stopper. The bottle is 5 ¾ "tall, including the stopper, by 3 ¾ "wide. It is in excellent condition, with minor scratches on the bottom consistent with age and light use, and no chips, scuffs, or repairs noted. The bottle is signed and numbered near the bottom, as shown. Michael Nourot (1949-2015) attended the first session of the Pilchuck Glass School, where he worked closely with founders Dale Chihuly and James Carpenter. Following his time at Pilchuck, Nourot was hired by the Venini factory to make Murano glass, making him one of the few Americans to work at Venini. In Italy, he acquired many color formulas that today make his work so distinctive, such as his famous reds. Michael and his wife, Ann Corcoran, operated Nourot Glass Studio in Benicia, California, from 1974 to 2012. The artists met at California College of Arts and Crafts (CCAC) in Fall 1973. Nourot is known for cased hand-blown glass vases, bowls, paperweights, perfume bottles, and sculptures. Nourot's work is exhibited internationally and in major galleries and museums throughout the United States.
