A heavy glass platter by André Thuret (1898-1965), a French glass artist who began his career as a chemist. Thuret’s scientific experiments explored the molecular change in the heating and cooling of glass, which eventually led him to create his own glass pieces in 1923. Thuret created biomorphic, fluid forms of clear, thick glass that captured the molten movement of the medium —a departure from the delicate, dainty glassware being produced at the time. For Thuret, each creation was a new experiment and, as each was executed by hand, no two are exactly alike. This platter with hand holders is from the early stages of Thuret’s career, when he worked primarily with pure, uncolored glass. The underside is etched with “andre thuret.”
