Here is another view:
...and here it is as it sat on the counter at Pacific Art Glass, awaiting its trip home:
I have decided to (sniff sniff) donate this one to the Ventura County Medical Foundation silent auction, which is next month. The vase that I made for that auction is also wonderful (I'll post photos later), but this one really knocks one's socks off, if I do say so myself. The proceeds of the auction go to help support the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the County Hospital, and other worthy recipients.
I find myself spending oodles of time just studying the layers of color and line in these newest pieces, smiling and ooh-ing and ah-ing all the time. It's a magical process, this art glass.
