Marialyce Hawke Cutaway Rosebowl

Now here’s a bowl that speaks to me on several levels. Cutaway rim, rosebowl shape, four layers of Rick Satava’s glass with Beautiful flower decor and great carving.

This is an early Marialyce piece signed with her maiden name – and I am lucky enough to have the original paperwork too.

A Rosebowl by Marialyce Hawke

Here is another *cut* top rose bowl by Marialyce. It is really hard to find the rosebowl shape – which i mainly collect – in modern cameo pieces.

I think this one is true cameo since it does have two layers of glass.

I have maybe one more cut top in a semi rose bowl shape – – I’ll have to look for a pic to post.

Pilgrim Cameo Roses Lamp from Stu Horn

Speaking of lamps – – – here’s a Pilgrim cameo lamp from my collection. I have heard that quite a few of these were made and that they could be turned out in a relatively short time. Is that your remembrance?? The carving is not that deep and the hardware for holding the shade is rather crude.

An Example of Marialyce Hawke’s Work, from Stu Horn

Here is a Marialyce piece that I consider etched. the amazing thing is its size -8 1/2 inches tall by 11 inches wide. Etched with orchids and in my favorite shape – a rose bowl. The larger pic is its true color – a pale lavender with faint vertical ribbing. I darkened the other views so the pattern would show better.

The *cut* top is fairly common in her work – sort of a trademark. Maybe Kelsey can tell us how she might do that?

“Desert Rain” from Stu Horn’s Collection

Stu Horn sent me this message, along with these lovely pictures of one of his pieces. Thanks Stu! :-)

IT SEEMED ONLY FITTING TO SHOW ONE OF MY FAVORITE KELSEY PIECES FIRST. AS SHOWN, ITS FROM 1995 – ENTITLED *DESERT RAIN* – AND IS ONE OF 40 MADE.

IT APPEARS TO BE A TWO LAYER CAMEO STANDING 5 3/4 INCHES HIGH. THE BASE COLOR IS SATINIZED YELLOW BUT WITH STRIATIONS OF CLEAR AND SOME DARKER COLORS THAT SHOW THROUGH TO THE EXTERIOR. YOU CAN SEE THIS IN THE TOP VIEW.

THE OUTER LAYER IS SHINY FINISH GREEN AND IS CUT THROUGH TO THE YELLOW IN A VERY INTRICATE PATTERN OF DELICATE FLOWERS AND FOLIAGE.

OVERALL A VERY STRIKING PIECE AND ONE THAT I TREASURE. THANKS KELSEY FOR MAKING IT. MAYBE YOU CAN GIVE US MORE INFORMATION ON HOW THIS PATTERN CAME TO BE.
