Donavon Boutz offers a humorous blend of human and animal forms in his traditional glassware styles. The elephant (see 1999.22.2) and salmon in these two chalices support the jewel-like encrusted vessels, challenging the functional purpose of the stem and creating a form that is more about wit and fantasy than utility.
