 As all my readers may know, I'm obsessed with mid century glassware. When I first started my collection I came across a coffee carafe that was magnificent and I fell in love (I featured it in this Kitsch Krazy awhile back). That is the first time I had ever seen a Fred Press and I had to find out more about him and acquire more of his pieces. Fred Press was an American artist whose artwork is some of the best in the business. This professor/sculptor was popular for his glassware during the 40's, 50's, and 60's and is still iconic today. I love his bold images, gold and turquoise color schemes, and mid century modern designs that make his glassware so unique. Here are some of my favorite Fred Press products!

  3. Argh. The interwebz ate my first attempt. I love all things Fred Press and have been trying to pick up pieces here and there - particularly when I see them locally. Have you ever encountered his rose pattern. I just picked up five signed glasses in it today and haven't been able to find any record of it anywhere. If you've heard anything, I'd love to know, and if you haven't, I'd be happy to send pictures! :)
