It has always been intresting to me to know what people collect and how they collect. I am all over the place myself, having many smaller collections within my Murano collection, but I did consider 1 piece to be the one that told me I should collect. That piece is the "Svazzo" bird scultpure by Barbini which is now used in my logo, id, etc. Before seeing that piece I really had no focus, I was collecting overall Blue Glass, and some odd pieces, without really thinking of collecting "Murano," but when I saw that piece I not only needed to have it, but knew it was meant to have it, lol.
It would be great for all of you out there to post that 1 piece or maybe that 1 artist that made you think, ok this is right for me! It was Barbini and his bird for me. How about all of you?
Hope to see some great photos!
