I believe you are thinking of the Steuben Glass piece, "Arctic Fisherman" by James Houston. It was designed in 1970 and combines Steuben's lead glass with a Rhodium-lated sterling silver Eskimo attempting to spear two engraved fish.

The piece is illustrated on page 134 of the following book:

Madigan, Mary Jean Smith. Steuben Glass: an American tradition in crystal. Rev. and expanded. New York: H.N. Abrams, 2003. 384 p. Includes bibliographical references (p. 373-374) and index. Artists' biographies: p. 234-245. Line drawings of stock pieces: p. 321-366.

If you would like a color photocopy of this page, I can e-mail it to you.

The designer describes his experiences at Steuben in his juvenile book:

Houston, James A. Fire into ice: adventures in glass making. Toronto: Tundra Books, 1998. [32] p.
