These are definitely the melted-est bottles I've seen recycled; there must be some serious skill to these Cobras.  8)

I love his work - I've added this piece and his link, in the Studio Glass list for the 1980's

I love that Ivo.  How is the decoration done?  Is it on the exterior and engraved?
It's very beautiful.

Tiny little air bubbles inside the glass outlining butterflies and floral motif - and I haven't got a clue how he got them in there.

He is one of the most interesting makers I've come across - his work can only be described as 'exquisite'.  I did wonder if it might be internal decoration as it seems he has a love of 'encasing' his decoration so it cannot be damaged (well unless dropped or bashed of course).

Some sort of miniature ariel technique, perhaps using a dremmel or stippling tool... ?
