Hi Delia,
I sent 2 more photos. I hope these are easier to see.

Sarah, your photos are excellent but - and I've tried numerous combinations and iterations of that signature - I can't come up with anything even remotely conclusive; it happens sometimes and I'm sorry we weren't able to immediately identify the maker of this piece.
I've valued this based on the market for other American studio art glass pieces of comparable size.
