Vase Hoop in Willow Geoffrey Baxter Whitefriars 1967, Pattern 9680
An icon of British design, Geoffrey Baxter was the outstanding British glass designer of the post-war period. From 1954 until 1980 he worked for Britain's leading handmade glass manufacturer, Whitefriars Glass. With radical shapes and bright psychedelic colours, Baxter put Whitefriars Glass on the post-war fashion map and became responsible for much of the company's success.
Baxter's philosophy was, "It's all very well to make a masterpiece, but what's the point if only the elite can afford to buy it?" He relished his position at Whitefriars. "As chief designer at Whitefriars, I have more scope than probably any other glass designer in Britain," he said in 1974. "I have a completely free hand to create." Characteristic of Baxter's distinctive style using textured surface, colour and weird and wonderful form which looks as fresh today as when it was first created. This vase demonstrates how organic texture inspired by nature was a focus for Baxter.
It not only encapsulates Baxter's individual style, but the spirit of the vibrant, dynamic, pop-and-rock driven Swinging Sixties and early Seventies. PRICING £2,000 Measures: height 29 cm, 11 ½ " diameter 13 cm., 5".
