Artist Reply: Hi Sharon This Was Our Studios Very First Hand Made Bevel Project & Started In 1990. It Was To Be The First Of Many Collaborations With Robert LemMon, Glass Beveler Extraordinaire, Who Fashioned Our Rose & Leaf Patterning Pieces With Facets Aplenty. All Grapes Are Made From Half Cut Marbles Called Muggels Which Flip Reality Beyond Upside Down, Due To Their Surface Curvature. Viewing This Entry In Person Is Quite The Kaleidoscopic Experience..Peace Interesting Note That Our Sketch Artist On This Beauty & Others Was Sharon Rose Eisley https://www.facebook.com/sharoneisleyart/?ref=br_rs
