George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944-2013), limited edition cameo glass "Blue Dog Bowl", designed in collaboration with Kelsey Murphy (20th Century, American/West Virginia) and the Pilgrim Glass Company, numbered #15/35. Layered and sandblasted design to the sides featuring a repeating motif of three seated blue dogs punctuated by live oak trees. Raised "Rodrigue" signature below one tree. Additionally etched on the base "903056", 15/35 (limited edition number); "P" for the Pilgrim Glass Company and production date of 1994. 5" H x 9" dia.

Note: George Rodrigue worked with Kelsey Murphy and Pilgrim Glass in West Virginia to recreate his Blue Dog designs in cameo glass. The layered pieces are sandblasted, revealing Rodrigue’s raised patterns. A total of three bowls and one vase were designed, each in editions of thirty-five. With the exception of the glass, bronzes, and some jewelry, Rodrigue created these novelty items for his own collection and experimentation, offering very few for sale. One of the bowls of this edition was featured in the Louisiana State University Museum of Art Exhibition which ran July 23 through September 18, 2011. (Source:
