Hi all,

lol if you see an antique at most antiques fairs its a rare site.
Do I count as an Aaronson collector now I have 2 of your pieces Adam?
Does this one have any name or range or just something that came from you imagination that day?
thanks
michelle

One piece is a budding collection, two a developing collection.... ;)

This is from a body of work titled the "tribal" collection. I "drew" the cane direction onto the hot glass using a torch. So a combination of furnace work and torch work.

In the immortal words of Michael Parkington:

One is an example, two is a mistake, three is a collection.

Sorry, not there yet  >:D
