"Hope Eternal" Size: 2.00" Price: SOLD

Here is a very large flower marble unlike any you have ever seen before, and it will blow your mind! Yoshi has developed his own unique style of borosilicate flower creation, which involves 5 to 6 long painstaking hours on the torch, laying dot after dot, raking and stretching, layering again and again to build the flower outwards. The finished product is a true wonder to behold!

This marble is truly hard to capture in photographs, to fully relay how 3-dimensional the design is, with all of the layers and details. Hopefully you can get an idea of what it's like, but on some level you'll have to trust me when I say this is one SERIOUSLY cool flower marble. By the way, this marble is MUCH more expensive in Japan, but you're able to get it cheaper from me as I introduce Yoshi to American collectors.

This marble was shown in the most recent issue of Japan's premiere Lampworking magazine, Lammaga. It's a VERY nicely done magazine. I happen to have an extra copy of the mag with the picture of this marble in it, and will include that with this marble for you.
