Untitled (Vetrobottle), 2016
Hand-blown canework glass bottle
Signed to the lower edge
A hand blown glass bottle from Ohio-based artist Darren Goodman’s Vetrobottle collection. Blown in reticello canework and an age old Venetian method called vetra a fili, this piece features a spiral pattern of yellow, green, and blue glass. It is shaped with a visually dramatic thin neck and unique flat lip over a tall body of organic folds created through gravity. The artist’s name and date are inscribed to the lower end of the bottle.

After graduating from Bowling Green State University he apprenticed under master glass artist Leon Applebaum in Corning, New York then attended workshops with several glass artist legends to include Dante Marioni (Seattle, WA), Lino Tagliapietra (Venice, Italy) and Nancy Callan (Seattle, WA). Darren received the commission to create trophy bottles for the Ferrari’s North America Challenge Races in 2009 and was honored with the Cincinnati Art Museum’s 4th Floor Award in 2011. He has exhibited his art glass throughout the Midwest and enthusiastically coordinates glass blowing classes for students at both the elementary and High School levels.
