It is hard not to be a broken record about the love of vintage pyrex. As I know face each day with the object of doing one new drawing, as well as continuing to work on a larger piece for the week, my mind often turns to vintage and Pyrex.
The project I did years past when I lived in the 1950's left an indelible mark upon me. There isn't a day that I don't access all I learned there in some way. Therefore, when it comes to my drawings/art I cannot help but pull from the endless possibilities of the colour design and style of that era.
Today my daily drawing is inspired by my love of 1950's fashion, but it plays a little trick. The vintage Pyrex pattern it plays with today is called Butterfly Gold and was actually not introduced until 1972. The Harvest Gold colour being one of the new looks for kitchens. Although, I did see harvest golds begin to appear in my later 1959 early 1960's Women and Home magazines.
This is an interesting bit on the Butterfly Gold pattern which I borrowed from The PYREX CORNING MUSEUM OF GLASS. (well worth a digital visit)
"Butterfly Gold was released as a PYREX Compatibles pattern for the Correlle Dinner Ware pattern of the same name.
