This series of Vase Sculptures was made by Zimmerman in 1996 and 1997. The collection was found buried in deep storage when Zimmerman moved his studio from Brooklyn to Hudson NY. It is with great delight that Valley Variety has the chance to bring this marvelous group of “lost” masterpieces to public view. Vases range in height from 20″ to 27″.
