2003 Convention Salt Order Form

Continuing the tradition of past national open salt conventions, a custom-made Convention Salt will be offered in a special limited edition to all collectors. This 8th NOSC Salt is a Stiegel-type, made in clear flint glass. It is a mold-blown 18th Century reproduction by Art Reed of Sweetwater Glass, who was found for us by our own LeeAnne Gommer Wilson. He was also highly recommended by Gay LeCleire Taylor, Curator of the Museum of American Glass, who said: “Art makes incredible early American reproduction glass.”
The 2003 Convention Salt is unique. The leaded glass is blown into a diamond point mold, attached to the pedestal foot and hand worked. The finished salt has a round bowl with a pinched diamond design on the outside, and measures approximately 2-3/4” diameter and 3” high. Since every salt is individually handmade, no two will be exactly alike. This combination of shape, design and size will not be made again, increasing the value of the limited edition. Every salt will be signed by Art Reed and marked “8th N.O.S.C. 2003”.

Art tells us: “My interest in early glass and the history of the glass making industry in 19th Century America is a strong influence on my work. Drawing from a vocabulary of 18th and 19th Century designs and techniques, I recreate the characteristics of hand blown utilitarian vessels and tableware.” Art has 30-years of glassmaking experience; his work is shown in museums, the Corning, Jones, Chrysler, and Morris among others.
