Anna Boothe: Scent-er Sculptured Flacon
This terrific pate de verre piece by Anna Boothe was created in response to a collaboration with painter Frances Middendorf (Italy and United States) and master perfumer Leonardo Opali (Italy). This flacon was inspired by the northern Italian Palladian estate Villa Pojana, where the trio exhibited in summer 2016, and where tobacco was first cultivated in that country.
Many of Boothe's pieces include hands as symbols. Their use carries an underlying tone of commonality between cultures: familiarity, camaraderie, and the general ability to communicate.
Boothe, of Zieglerville, Pennsylvania, has work in the permanent collection of The Corning Museum of Glass and many private collections.
- Initialed and dated by Boothe.
