Reifschlager Gallery At The Rockwell Museum--pre 2000

The first ten years at Steuben saw the creation of many different colors of glass with iridized finishes.

A piece of art glass may be decorated in many ways. Decorations were done at the fire by applying colored glass threads and circles to the nearly completed object. These appliqués were manipulated with a metal hook and pulled into the desired decoration. By hooking the threads in opposite directions, they could be formed into loops or varying types of feathers. By pulling the hook once through a circle of glass, a heart or leaf shape could be fashioned. Millefiori glass florets and other flower shapes were also applied to soe of these decorated Aurene.

Once the appliqués were hooked into their final design, the decoration was marvered or pressed into the body of the piece until it was smooth.
