A non-crystalline material often translucent in appearance, glass has a rich history. Once a luxury, glass products have evolved considerably over time with different techniques in place today. A hand-blown clear glass hat vessel by Preston Singletary is among the top lots of the American Indian Art + Objects Auction, offered by John Moran Auctioneers. The renowned Native American glass artist Preston Singletary has managed to capture the timeless beauty of his material. The inverted hat-form vessel has a sand-carved figural Tlingit motif, a theme often incorporated by Singletary into his glass works.
A polychrome wood rattle in the form of an oystercatcher and a Navajo mixed metal concho belt are other notable lots. The belt comes with a heavy detachable buckle equipped with 14 round conchos, all in sterling silver and 14-karat gold. Visit Bidsquare to browse the full catalog and discover other online auctions.
