No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

Ardy's item reminds me of the graceful movements of a Yoga teacher I know - the shapes and the finish of each move are full of finesse and have a "visual lightness" and suggest "movement within stillness".

The ebay item has none of that - with its rather plump body and short, stubby, round-ended upper parts.

Hmm. Just felt the need to say that.  :D

You've hit the nail on the head, Kev.
There's something absolutely "right" about it.

Hi Guys, I thought I had found it out last week when I saw another similar piece with an Arte Murano label on it. I wrote to them asking if they had made it and got an email back saying they could not manufacture it and attaching their current brochure.

So I guess I got nowhere....
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.
