I've found several publications in the Rakow Library which have helpful information about designs that were done for Steuben by famous artists, such as Matisse and O'Keeffe. I am attaching copies from those books. They did not mention any colored pieces. Steuben mostly stopped making colors in 1933. The pieces that were designed by the artists were done in 1940. It is possible that designs were made prior, but highly unlikely. Here is a link to a digitalized PDF of the exhibition by Steuben "Designs in Glass by Twenty Seven Contemporary Artists" 1940, which featured O'Keeffe.
