Lynne â€” I disagree completely. Using an opalescent glass for your bowl would take the emphasis away from the sculptural beauty of it, to its loss.
I can see that my effort in producing a carefully worked out theory, which I have christened Le Style Franckhauser, is a complete waste of time. No-one has agreed, disagreed, or even criticised me for discussing women's breasts. I haven't even had any anonymous phone calls! It has had the worst possible reception â€” it has been completely ignored.
It is obvious to me that your beautiful Birds of Paradise bowl, Lynne, was designed for the pink glass it was made in, and possibly for other light colours. As a lighting bowl, I have only seen it in pink.
Had Franckhauser intented it for use with opalescent glass, he would have used plump, Thelwell-like pigeons or wrens, not gently moulded birds of paradise.
Anyway, agree or disagree, that's my 2d worth.
Which brings me onto a much more important topic. Why have I never seen any plump children on plump little ponies when I cross the Thelwell Viaduct? And why are there never any ocean-going sailing ships tictacking their way along the Manchester Ship Canal way down below?
Happy New Year,
