About this artwork
Sculptor Sidney Waugh joined Steuben as chief designer in 1933, creating such memorable designs as this bowl. It was made using copper-wheel engraving to produce the raised decorative effect for each of the 12 signs of the zodiac. Discussing Waugh’s work in a London exhibition of 1935, a critic for the Sunday Times wrote, “The work of Mr. Sidney Waugh attains a classic beauty and perfection quite unrivalled in contemporary glass engraving. His taste is unfailing as his line is exquisite, delicate, and expressive.”
