This is the result of a challenge to make a compelling bead with clear glass and clear glass alone. I had a vision of a smooth slanted surface with trapped bubbles on the bottom, and a curved top with the texture of fine stringers covering the surface. As I got going it began to look like a flower pot, so I added petals near the middle, at the top of the "pot." Then I did a little shaping at the bottom and added some poked dots ... It's certainly interesting. So you like it?
