Gift of the Ben W. Heineman Sr. Family
Web Description: 
In the 1980s, Myers started to combine colorless and colored glass. At the same time, he made much larger vessels while experimenting with new shapes. Although this red piece looks quite unlike the opaque black and white vessels, Myers still considers it to be part of his “Contiguous Fragment” series. Like Henri Matisse, Paul Klee, and Emil Nolde, all well-known painters whom he admires, Myers is an accomplished colorist. A lover of nature and the garden, he makes vessels that are collages inspired by landscape.
