Item Description

Pair of GRECIAN GOBLETS

I just love the whimsical quality of the frieze.  Cast in lead-free culinary grade pewter, they are perfectly usable.

This exquisite pair of carefully-crafted Grecian goblets is the perfect treasure for someone who loves Grecian art and culture, an equestrian enthusiast, and collectors of pewterware.

About the Artist

“WHEN I DO A PIECE, MY GOAL IS TO CAPTURE SOMETHING SPECIAL IN IT. I'M NOT INTERESTED IN ‘PRETTY,’ I WANT A SPARK OF LIFE: MOVEMENT, DRAMA, THAT SOMETHING THAT WILL MAKE YOU LOOK TWICE ... THAT POWER.”

Douwe Blumberg, (“Dow”, a Dutch name) came to his art career by a rather circuitous route.

Born in Los Angeles of two amateur artists, his artistic gifts were evident early on. During a childhood that was almost a continual art education, he spent some formative years in Europe being exposed to western artistic traditions. Later he attended the University of Southern California's prestigious Idyllwild School of the Arts and Music. This was followed up with four years of sculpture/metal working education during which he won many national awards. His education was capped by an apprenticeship at a CA art foundry where he mastered the technical aspects of creating bronzes; hence his “art education” consisted of a unique and healthy mix of traditional schooling with hands-on apprenticeship. He attributes his ability to work in varied techniques and styles to this style of learning.
