So very sorry to hear of Frank Creech passing, he was a true gentleman. I always enjoyed hearing their stories and learning from both of them. He will be missed. My condolences to Elizabeth and their family.

Debby Schultz

I will miss Frank. He & Elizabeth were the life of the party. They were involved with Carder Steuben for quite a long time. They were with the friends of Carder. I have some wonderful memories. I helped Frank find the perfect perfume for one of Elizabeth's major birthdays. So much fun. Beth Shaut

Response to Lynda Randolph Comments

Lynda asked how much intarsia was done. I think Carder said about 100 pieces. Based on auctions and exposure on the internet I suspect more than 100 pieces, but certainly due to difficulty a very limited production.

Lynda asked whether I own an intarsia piece.

Lynda says she like seeing what is not on display. response

a) If you go to a museum with Carder Steuben not on display, ask about it. It might remind the museum they have Steuben in storage and patrons are interested in sharing it.

c) Reminds us that museums not only have a responsibility to display, but also to preserve.

d) Every picture, on display or not, instructs the viewer to a piece of art glass they may not have experience before.


Every so often we get the name of an appraiser and we share that. We don't recommend, but merely pass it along. So here is one just received on Brenda Hill.

Personal Footnote: In 2017 I started on the path of becoming an accredited personal property appraiser with American Society of Appraisers (ASA) however in October 2018 my husband was killed by a drunk driver and that tragedy put just about everything in my life on hold. I maintain my ASA membership, peruse ongoing education and have helped folks who find me with a need but I am not actively advertising to solicit business, however I hope to someday.
