Style Moderne: French Art Deco Enameled Glass from the Ed & Karen Ogul Collection
March 21, 2015 - September 13, 2015Ann K. Walch-Chan Gallery
The Art Deco style was focused on modernity and the industrialization of post-World War I Europe. During this time, glass became one of the most versatile and stylish materials. It was blown, molded, cast, cut, carved, sand blasted, engraved, acid etched, and in the case of this collection, enameled. From the collection of Ed and Karen Ogul, each object in this exhibition is wholly unique yet designed in a manner that fits seamlessly with the romantic appeal of the Art Deco style.
