Background Info and Provenance

(Written in 2022).

A mesmerising art glass vase created in 1997 by world-renown Western Australian artist, Gerry Reilly. This is a captivating piece with a stunning flow. I love the contrast in colour between the vivid pink-wave top and the dull, greenish colour of the base section. The piece is signed clearly to the base “Melting Pot Glass WA ’97”.

Hot glass designer and artist, Gerry Reilly creates a captivating range of handcrafted blown art glass designs from the Melting Pot Glass Studio in Margaret River WA. Gerry has owned and operated Melting Pot Studios for the past 30 years. In 2014, his studio moved from main street to his beautiful 1.5ha property, west of Margaret River. Gerry started his journey in hot glass after training in Ceramics & Glass at Monash University and University of Tasmania. He worked in clay and glass studios in Tasmania and SA, including the Jam Factory Craft Workshop, before settling in the south west of WA in the mid-1980s. He has been the recipient of numerous awards and has exhibited nationally and internationally.

In 2017, Gerry was commissioned to create a major artwork for the Intercontinental Hotel in Perth, collaborating with architect Eva Sue, on a magnificent three-part hanging installation, Forest Drift, in the hotel foyer, made with 72 blown glass leaves. The commission also included platters in every guest room; sculptures and vases in the upstairs VIP breakfast room.

The following year, Gerry Reilly created Effervescence for Perth’s Optus Stadium with over 80 glass bubbles suspended across the roof of the ground floor VIP Locker Room bar.

The Reilly piece offered in this listing adds a nice touch to any collection of art glass as shown in our array of photos.

Art-glass pumped out of factories in the thousands by machines is cheap but rarely ignites any inspiration and passion- most ends up as landfill within a few years because after the trend has moved on the piece is basically worthless. Gerry Reilly’s work shows an artist’s heart and soul and the expertise of a master at the height of his game. Hand-crafted work of this standard supersedes trends and will continue to tell stories for generations to come. There are very few better ways to invest in your home and the future of our environment.

This is your guarantee that I strive to describe my items as accurately as I can and will not stock items unless they are in excellent condition.
PICK-UP . . . from 30 or 40 minutes North of BRISBANE city is accepted but postage is preferred as my home is hard to find. Because of this I will nominate a friend or family member for you to collect the item from if you need collection. Pick-up in person must be worked out prior to purchase- thank you. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ POSTAGE is offered internationally. All our Decorative Arts pieces are delivered through AUSTRALIA POST. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ POSTAGE ESTIMATES. . . . ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ To BRISBANE- most of our pieces cost $15 - $18 to send. . . To SYDNEY or MELBOURNE- Small Vase- around $20 - $23, Medium Vase- around $20 - $25, Large Vase- around $24 - $30. Let us know if you need an EXACT COST for postage prior to purchase. The above postage estimates include $2.95 for a signature on delivery. . . INSURANCE against being lost or broken in transit up to the value of $200 is included in the estimates above. If your vase is cheaper or more expensive than $200 this will effect your postage fee slightly. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A BOXING FEE of $3.00 is included in the fee above to cover the cost of searching for and storing used packing materials. With the millions of cardboard boxes that end up as landfill every year we don’t believe in supporting the manufacture of boxes for post. Instead of buying new boxes and packing materials and passing this cost onto our customers we spend considerable time sourcing used boxes and then fashioning boxes to fit each item. We do the same for bubble-wrap and foam pieces. This requires a large investment of time, energy, ingenuity, organization and storage space- it is much easier and cheaper to buy new packing materials but I can’t justify taking the easy way out when so much packing material ends up polluting our earth. Our $3.00 charge does little to pay for the time (and storage) needed do this and to pack your item (there is also the time needed to get your package to the post office). This is something we’re happy to do for our customers and the environment. We appreciate your support in this area.

Confirm prior to purchase if you need this. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Other payment methods are available but problematic and may incur additional fees.
