About The Artist:

George Rodrigue was a Louisiana artist first known for his paintings of Creole culture and later for his paintings of the "Blue Dog", a melancholy mutt whose characteristics were based on his beloved pet, Tiffany. Rodrigue painted the Blue Dog in countless situations, including part of an Absolut Vodka campaign in the mid-1990s, and next to iconic stars such as Marilyn Monroe.>br/>

From 1993 to 1995, Rodrigue worked with Kelsey Murphy and the Pilgrim Glass Company in West Virginia to create three bowls and a vase in his "Blue Dog" design. Made of sandblasted cameo glass, each item was produced in an edition of thirty-five. According to the current owner, one of the bowls of this edition was featured in the Louisiana State University Museum of Art Exhibition, July 23 through September 18, 2011. Rodrigue's novelty items were only available in limited editions and were primarily created for his private collection. For this reason, the bulk of these works remain in private hands.
