Here is one of Yoshi's most sought after marble styles - the magnificent and elegant all white dot stacker marble. This marble highlights the absolute precision of Yoshi's work, as only the color white was used to create the dot stacking, with clear mixed in to help form the patterns. It is a monument to glass control and elegant design, celebrated for its absolutely pure beauty. Yoshi doesn't make very many of these, and this is the largest and most detailed one that I know of. It is composed of layer after layer of painstaking detail, a days long process that ends in glass art for the ages. Don't miss your chance at owning one of the purest works of glass art beauty that has ever been created!! Signed with Yoshi's signature opal in the middle and then a '16' in ti pen on the outside for the year.
To showcase his amazing creations, Yoshi has created special boxes to ship, display and store the marbles in. The last two pics show one of these boxes, and it comes complete with a removable black felt base which the marble can rest on either inside or outside of the box, depending on where you want to place the base. There are two nice little black pillows inside the box which hold the marble in place as the box clicks shut. It is a heavy, extremely well-crafted box that is lacquered to a deep, shiny black finish. This box then comes inside another black storage box. The whole design is extraordinarily brilliant, bringing a touch of class to marbles that deserve it far above and beyond all others. Yoshi is an artist at the highest level of artistry, and he respects his work on a level like it truly should be respected. Please forgive the bright shining dust in the pics - some of those particles fought a tough battle in trying to cling to this beautiful box. The box is WAAAAY better in hand, trust me.
