This is an ultra early marble from Yoshi, the earliest I've ever seen as a matter of fact, made clear back in 2008. It is also a very large example of Yoshi's early style, which usually resembled some sort of flower design from his wildly unique dot stack tech. This one also features a heat shield on the other side to protect the flower, ha! A marble like this belongs in a glass museum, and will be an amazing piece to have as the years click by and Yoshi becomes more and more famous in the world of glass. He is one of the best glassblowers in the world, so to own pieces from these early days of his career, especially ones like this which show the hallmark signs of everything to come, is an awesome thing. Super sweet marble!! Signed 'YK 08'.
