Thought I would share my latest purchase - this is a new weight by Mike Hunter of Twists Glass called Blue Rose Trellis, He has made a murrini style rose cane and overlaid this on a twist design, it is a liomited editon of only 12 weights and this is number 9.

Quite beautiful and superbly complex. I'm going to have to add a Mike Hunter to my collection.

Wow!  Mike is really branching out, isn't he?   :shock:

Do you happen to know if he makes the roses in the same way he makes the clown faces - really large, and then pulled and pulled and pulled and .....   :shock:

Hi all

Mike Hunter really is producing some superb weights.

I visited his studio a couple of months ago and commissioned a weight from Mike to incorporate the three elements of his work that I admire - his superb butterflies - his clown faces and his perfect torsades.

Well it arrived this morning and to say I am highly delighted with it is a definite understatement - pic at http://i13.tinypic.com/2cdfrch.jpg

Enjoy

Derek
