Cold strawberry wine in delicate crystal. The smell of orange groves in full bloom, wafting across the Arizona desert just after a rain storm and just before sunrise. The promise of passion tried and revelled in, old and yet new each time. Lightening on the distant mountains. Stars just out of reach in a dome of darkness. Healing smoke from sage brushes.

This hollow form is sumptuous Joe.

And I thought the blue one was perfection ! This one takes the cake , Joe : ) Between the shape , colors , and finish , I don’t know which is the most impressive. I think I’ll go with the finish…it adds a lot of depth to the piece.Are you sure you didn’t have it glazed ? LOL….... Do you think you can top this one ?

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

You are a real expert with the dyes and finishes. Each one gets “more beautifuller”
