The Many Plaques of Frederick Carder

Mr. Carder had a real talent for sculpture. His ability to translate a two dimensional drawing into a three dimensional object propelled him to create some magnificent figurals and plaques for Steuben. Sculpture is also the artistic endeavor that captured his imagination for the last thirty ears of his life. This was his studio period at Steuben in which he created Cire Perdue and Diatreta. During this period he personally created every single piece as well as the process of casting the glass into a finished object.

For an artist of Mr. Carder's caliber, it must have been the most gratifying way possible to spend the closing years of his long life.

Intaglio Carved and Molded Plaque of A Young Gladys Carder

9 inches High, 6 7/8 inches Wide

Gladys, born in1889, was Frederick Carder's daughter who married Gillett Welles. This plaque not only showcases Mr. Carder's skills as a sculptor, but is also a loving memory of his daughter as a young girl. In spite of being cast in a mold, this example is believed to be a family heirloom and may be the only such plaque.
