RICHARD MARQUIS (b. 1945) "Sphere Pyramid 08-2," Washington State, 2008 Granulare glass, wood Base signed, dated, and titled with copyright Overall: 16 1/2" x 18" sq., each sphere approx. 5 1/2" dia. Provenance: The Daphne Farago Collection of Decorative Arts. Sold for the benefit of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Artist note on base: "These spheres are not really round. Blown without a mold, they are all slightly irregular. To make them fit in the base simply rotate them until they find their own space. You can stack them in any order; you might have to shift them around to find a better fit. Good luck, Dick Marquis". Base: a few minor scratches. Spheres: Overall excellent condition, one sphere has a minor flaw (in making of).
