Vase, Johann Loetz-Witwe, Decor russian-green Phenomen Genre 1/158, ca. 1901
Art glass from glassworks Johann Loetz Witwe is characterized by the combination of varied decors with sometimes unusual shapes. This vessel impresses with its colorful decor Phenomen Genre 1/158, which is based on a very complex process of creation.
All starts with a small glass sphere, the workpiece, which gets a yellow overlay. The sphere is then blown up in a blowing mould with vertically positioned ribs. They leave an imprint on the wall, creating hollow spaces. A thin silver oxide thread is then spun around the workpiece, breaking in the process of further inflation, resulting in the dotted, vertical pattern. In a further step, other silver threads are warped into uniform feathers. This causes different blue, lilac and green iridescent shades that beautifully stand out against the russian-green ground.
