Gift of the Ben W. Heineman Sr. Family
Web Description: 
Using a paperweight-related technique, Peiser overlaid this blown vessel with several layers of colorless glass. Enclosed are drawings of landscapes that were painstakingly made with pieces of colored glass and glass canes while the vessel was on the blowpipe. Only a few of these rare vessels were produced by Peiser, and their technical expertise for the time in which they were made is extraordinary. The title reflects places and events in the artist’s life. Peiser has never hesitated to explore new directions in glass and glassmaking techniques, and his career is marked by series of works that are often vastly different from one another.
