More About this Item


Description: David Huchthausen
American; b. 1952
Baden bei Wien, 1978
blown glass
A gorgeous example of American Studio Glass pioneer David Huchthausen's early "Air Trap" series. The shimmering internal decoration of this vessel was created using an adaptation of the Scandinavian ariel technique. Combining strategically placed air bubbles with iridescent glass powders, the simple, abstract surface design of this piece's thick glass walls both demonstrate the influence of primitive art found in the artist's early work and foreshadow the importance of coldworking later in his career. Engraved signature, title and date: "David R. Huchthausen, Baden bei Wein, 1978, No. 173."

David Huchthausen earned a B.S. in 1975 from the University of Wisconsin in Madison and a M.F.A. from the University of Illinois, Normal, where he directed its glass program under the supervision of Joel Myers. As a Fulbright Scholar, he studied at the University of Applied Arts, in Vienna, Autstria, and served as master craftsman and director of the Glass Program at the Appalachian Center for the Arts in Smithville, TN, and associate professor of art and director of glass programs at the Tennessee Tech University.

Huchthausen has had numerous one-man shows and group shows abroad and in the United States, including 200 Years of American Glass at the Corning Museum of Glass. His work is a part of more than 40 museum collections in the United States and abroad, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. He lives and works in Seattle, WA.
8"H. Very good condition.
