Vases from the Jack C Richards collection.

René Jules Lalique (1860-1945) was a French designer and artist known for his perfume bottles, vases, jewellery, chandeliers, clocks and automobile hood ornaments. Although Lalique was initially recognised for his jewellery designs, by the 1920s he was internationally recognised for his Art Nouveau works and later Art Deco glass works.

Professor Jack Richards collected his first Lalique vase in Cairo in the 1970s. When asked why he collects Lalique vases he commented, "I loved the way Lalique could turn an everyday substance (glass) into beautiful jewel-like objects. Each vase is, to me, a masterpiece."

Exhibitions Curator Jolene Douglas has selected 20 vases from Professor Richards’ collection to exhibit in the Concourse Gallery. While the exhibition includes two early vases dated 1912 and 1914, most of the vases are from the period 1922 to 1933. This is a rare opportunity to see Art Nouveau and Art Deco glass art of the finest quality.
