In the words of the artist, 'glamorous' is the best word to describe the Winged bottle. The winged is side dipped twice and dynamically twisted by hand.
A sumptuous bottle with the hot pink elegantly cased in clear glass and refracting into the gentle twists of the bottles form. The bottle can be functional or displayed as a small sculpture.
This particular piece is a rare find as it is one of the very early creations from when Michael Trimpol first established his Hotglass studio in 1989, a modern version of the bottles design is still in production now.
Excellent, only a few movement marks to the base commensurable with age.
The base bears Trimpol's signature, the etched '1989' denoting its age.

A BIT OF HISTORY
Born in Philadelphia, PA, Michael Trimpol was first introduced to glass working during a high school stained glass course in Stowe, Vermont. He pursued a career in stained glass while attending Concordia University in Montreal designing and creating many residential commissions as well as several public installations. Frustrated with the limitations of the two dimensional process, he enrolled at Sheridan College School of Craft & Design in Mississauga, Ontario to learn the art of glassblowing.
Upon graduation in 1985, he was accepted for a residency at Harbourfront Craft Studios, one of Toronto's most popular tourist destinations. Shortly after he left Harbourfront in 1989, he established his own company Hotglass Inc. in Mississauga, Ontario for which he designed and created a full line of blown glass products.
In 1995, Michael relocated to Stowe, Vermont and founded Little River Hotglass Studio. He currently designs and manufactures a diverse body of product in addition to overseeing the operations of the studio.
