Annieglass at the Smithsonian

Two pieces from the Annieglass Shell Series can be found in the Luce Foundation Collection of American Craft opened in 2006 in the former patent office and adjacent to the National Portrait Gallery. The Luce Foundation Collection was intended as a study area for research in American contemporary craft and folk artists so they are displayed in an unusual style as artifacts for study. Computers are in every aisle so you may look it up by my name or accession number and review a short video about it and how I made it.

The two pieces in the Shell Series are called:
Coquina ( accession number 1996.87.30) and Tiburon (accession number 1981996.87.1)

Both are made of frosted and sandblasted glass with a handpainted 24K gold edge and are still in production at the Annieglass Studio in Watsonville and available in several hundred retail locations worldwide. Every piece of Annieglass is engraved on the back with the studio signature and "Made in USA."
