Auction Description:
MASTERWORKS: A Contemporary Glass Auction

An auction of contemporary glass works from the 1970s and beyond.
Thursday April 24th, 2014 Preview 6:30-8:00 pm EST? Auction 8:00-9:30 pm EST.

This auction is primarily based on the collection of California collectors Barbara and Warren Poole. Many of you know the Pooles from their active role in the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass (AACG), or from visiting their exquisite collection.

On my visit to their home several years ago, I was struck by how they
articulated the thought and reasoning behind each piece that was on
display. I loved how they combined this with an emotion and passion that
made each work come alive. I hope that we can achieve this connection
in our catalogue and auction. I thank Warren and Barbara for trusting
Habatat Galleries with their precious objects.

We have also included other significant works to make the auction the best and most exciting event possible!

Description: Leah Wingfield, Noche del Amor (Night of Love), 2006. 22.5 x 17 x 9.5?. (Poole collection & comments) ?We had been watching for a piece by Leah for a long time, having missed several series we liked a lot. We saw this at Habatat and were excited that it was available. We placed it on a ledge between two rooms so we could enjoy both equally entrancing sides of it. The daylight going through it lit it in a different way than the beautiful night lighting. This cast and painted piece really captures the intensity of Tango.? Signed by the artist.

Habatat - William Morris, #66 Stenhytta, Fine Art Glass

Lot 8: Habatat - William Morris, #66 Stenhytta, Fine Art Glass

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

The coloration of glass is similar to the Tabac Basket Series which was created by Dale Chihuly, with the help of William Morris around the same time this sculpture was created. Purchased from a German auction. Signed ?William A Morris 66 Stemytta ?79?.

Description: Hiroshi Yamano, Fish Catcher Bag #116, 2005. 11.5 x 6.5 x 5?. (Poole collection & comments) ?We had no idea when we acquired this piece that so many different processes (blown, hot sculpted, cold worked) had gone into creating it. We purchased it in New York but didn?t fully appreciate it until we met Hiroshi at an exhibit he had in a gallery on the island of Hawaii. We continually enjoy its elegance and wonder at the symbolism of the two hanging fish. Acquired from the Heller Gallery, New York, NY. Signed by the artist.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Bertil Vallien, Upright Boat, 1985. 42 x 12 x 75?. (From a private collection) The boat forms have long been part of Viking tradition representing the passage from life to death. The faces and masks are expressionless but suggest fear or longing, love or hate, watchfulness and thought. Sometimes a face or mask is the whole sculpture, sometimes it peers out from within a modernist form, suggesting a trapped soul. This sandcast ?Upright Boat? has 6 faces or masks, 2 houses and a number of columns and steps on the surface of the sculpture. Signed ?B. Vallien Kosta Boda 305880285?.

(Poole collection & comments) ?The Bispos state that this piece is part of a series ?inspired by spiritual transition and nature of the Monterey and Big Sur area where they live. There is intricate cold working on the piece and the neck of the vessel turns into the neck and tapered head of a bird.? The work on this piece is remarkable. At the same time as one wonders at the amazing cold working it also somehow gives off an eerie message. We bid successfully at a Bay Area Glass Institute auction in 2007 where this work won a major award.? Signed by the artist.

Description: Hank Adams, Aviator, 1994. 44 x 15 x 13?. (Poole collection & comments) ?We had enjoyed Hank?s work for some time for its creative ideas, humor and unique execution. We went to Heller Gallery in anticipation of a show they were to open the next day. The pieces weren?t there yet and we were getting anxious. We went back the next day, the pieces were there and installed and we knew instantly that we wanted Aviator, a piece hanging from the ceiling. A bonus was a hug from Hank.? Cast glass and copper.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Jenny Pohlman and Sabrina Knowles, Song in a Miner ? Tapestry Series, 2007. 75 x 62 x 12?. (Poole collection & comments) ?This masterwork is one of our favorite pieces. We were fortunate to start a treasured friendship with the talented women a few years earlier. We committed to the work before it was even finished and visited the artists to see it in progress. It was exhibited in Florida at Palm Beach 3 before being delivered to us. We then had the fun of installing the 72 pieces! Some while later Jenny and Sabrina were in our area to teach at the Bay Area Glass Institute. When they visited us for dinner the first thing they did was to adjust a number of pieces that we hadn?t hung properly. We got some great pictures of that!?

Description: Therman Statom, Aegean, 2004. 42.75 x 42.75 x 5.5?. (Poole collection & comments) ?What can you say about a piece that shows so many artistic abilities in one work? I love the sections that show what an accomplished painter Therman is as well as the abstractions throughout. The various objects are curious, including a tiny painting (or photo) of some sort of workshop. The backdrop for that section is a page from the phone book (no one we know!). We looked for a long time before finding this piece which we believe is one of his best.? Acquired from the Traver Gallery, Seattle, WA.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Kazumi Ikemoto, Scene 0402, 2004. 16 x 16 x 16?. (Poole & comments) ?This is probably the most imaginative piece we have collected. It seems like a fairy tale as you move around the piece. Kazumi?s artist statement is as follows: ?In my work I use imaginary half-man, half-beast creatures in scenes vaguely reminiscent of something you have seen before. I depict a hazy world of chaotic memories where reality and fantasy intersect, where the past and the present co-exist.? Alice Chappell of the former Chappell Gallery described his process ?Kazumi creates his work by blowing layers of powdered glass enamel onto the surface of the vessel, one color at a time. Once the layer is on, his uses a subtractive method whereby he eliminates what he does not want. After firing he repeats this process several times.?? Signed by the artist.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Bertil Vallien, Janusz Head, circa 2000. 12 x 10 x 5?. (From a private collection) ?Janus? is an ancient Roman god who has been associated with doorways, beginnings, and transitions. Bertil has depicted Janus with two-faces as he looks to the future and the past. The nickname for this series is ?Axe Head? as these heads are sandcast, cold worked, polished and resemble an axe. The purpose of the shape is to access the glass? refractive qualities allowing the viewer to see 2 heads from all angles. Signed ?B. Vallien 7186031 Kosta Boda Unique?.

Description: Miles Van Rensselaer, Hand, 2003. 10.25 x 6.5 x 14.5?. (Poole collection & comments) ?This glass and bronze hand reaches out to you as it tries to hold water (or glass?). We thought it such a clever idea and wanted to display it where it would surprise a viewer-----just around a corner or behind a door. We thought better of it when we realized the piece would be at risk in such a location.? Acquired from the Heller Gallery, New York, NY. Signed by the artist.

Description: Karen Willenbrink-Johnsen, Dog Jumping Through Hoop, circa 2000. 15 x 5 x 7.5?. (Poole collection & comments) ?This entertaining piece was in the BAGI auction in 2003. We saw it at a preview and knew we wanted it but had to attend a family wedding the night of the auction. A friend (Marge Levy) offered to bid in our behalf and we won the piece. These hot sculpted poodles doing a balancing act including fire are so much fun. Anyone who knows poodles can appreciate how smart and funny they are.?

Description: David Reekie, Different Hats II, 2005. 16 x 10 x 9.5?. (Poole collection & comments) ?In 2005 we had decided to try to purchase a cast piece by David Reekie. Since his work was to be shown at SOFA we lined up with the mob on the first evening and dashed in the door to be first at the gallery where they were. This charming work appealed to us immediately as it did to others just behind us. We had to decide in short order but it was pretty easy! We were fortunate to talk with both David and his lovely wife. She made a point of calling my attention to the particular care and skill which had gone in to the bases of the two pieces. Of course the humor apparent in the piece makes one wonder exactly what was that fellow saying?? Acquired from the Riley Galleries, Cleveland, OH. Signed ?A105? & ?A205?.

Everyone was awed by Daniel?s work and several of us wanted to acquire Carune. It was installed in our home on an alabaster fireplace wall and the lighting caused a remarkable shadow to appear beneath the piece. Of course Daniel had modeled it that way on purpose.? Cast glass.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Irene Frolic, Memorial Series, 1993. 12.75 x 7 x 5?. (From a private collection) You cannot mistake an Ilene Frolic figurative sculpture. There is sensitivity, and a moodiness that perhaps was inspired by her background as a holocaust survivor. This sculpture is an exquisite example of her early cast work and seems to convey a wide range of human emotions. Signed by the artist.

John?s work is cast, thus the weight of the two pieces.? Acquired from the Heller Gallery in Palm Beach in 1994. Signed ?Lewis 87-25?.

Description: Laura De Santillana, Purple Flag, 2004. 14 x 14 x 4.5?. (Poole collection & comments) ?We were long attracted to Laura?s beautifully subtle pieces. They are blown and then compressed to show the qualities of glass similar to painting and sculpture - color, luminosity and fluid form. This piece hints at a figurative shape within. It is simply elegant. We had been looking for a work of Laura?s for some time. Finally found this piece with Kate Elliott of Elliott Gallery in Seattle, WA in 2004.? Signed by the artist.

Description: Dante Marioni, 12 Objects, 2002. 27 x 18.75 x 5.25?. (From a private collection) ?Marioni has a love and a profound respect for the glassblowing process. For him, making objects is about ?the art of glassblowing rather than the blowing of glass art,? and he is careful to preserve the traditions of the craft as they were passed on to him. His focus and primary interest is the working of glass, and his elegant vessels are the radiant record of his ongoing relationship with the material.? - Tina Oldknow, art historian specializing in historic and contemporary glass.

It had just gone on display shortly before we saw it. No question we had to have it. Its whimsical style and brilliant execution captured us completely. We have to tell people that the clothes pins are metal and the vessels put out to dry are anchored by pegs into holes in the glass pieces. Great fun.?

Description: Tobias Mohl, Nest, 2007. 25 x 25 x 9?. (Poole collection & comments) ?We admired the work of Tobias Mohl for quite a while at SOFA and elsewhere. Finally we contacted Galleri Gronlund in Denmark and were able to commission one of his lighted boxes housing these elegant ?nests?. Each one is roughly the same shape but of distinctly different pattern from the others. The piece demonstrates Tobias? skill as a glass blower but also causes one to wonder at the elegance of each.?

These sandcast masks are wonderfully textured - a quality I especially like. On the back side you see embedded mystical objects but when installed you can?t see them, only know they are there. The masks were attached to brackets so it seemed Bertil intended then to hide those secrets.? Acquired from Betsy Rosenfield Gallery, Chicago, IL. Signed by the artist.

(Poole collection & comments) ?The de Young Museum has a piece by Nicolas from the (George and Dorothy) Saxe collection that we think is absolutely stunning. It inspired us to try to acquire a piece for ourselves, not an easy process, since his work is in great demand. This reclining figure was a new idea for us but we could not resist its elegance and peaceful aura. There were a couple galleries showing Africano?s work at an art fair in San Francisco. We were torn but ended up choosing this from Jenkins-Johnson Gallery in San Francisco.? Cast glass.
