DESCRIPTION

The Spool Decanter is one of the only fifteen designs from the Historic Period to have an official name.

This vessel is the perfect example of the Modern Art inspirations and references that may be found in the work of master-glass blower, Wayne Husted. The silhouette of the piece seems to echo Constantine Brancusi's monumental sculpture, "The Endless Column". 

In Husted's 2 ft tall glass vessel or in Brancusi's 96 ft tall metal sculpture, the elongated rhythmic "spool" silhouette gives a similar visual or visceral impact. 

Husted, along with his contemporary artists both in Europe and America, explored graceful and reductive forms, both for the aesthetic appeal and the technical challenges / performances. The work of the artist / glass-blower that span just over a decade at the Blenko Glass Factory, represents a corner stone of the Historical Design Period of the manufacture.
