This is another ultra early marble from Yoshi, one of the earliest I've ever seen as a matter of fact, made clear back in 2008. It is a killer example of Yoshi's early style, which like this one, usually resembled some sort of flower design from his wildly unique dot stack tech. 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 already 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. My favorite part of this one is the blues, so bold and bright and beautiful! There is a small, very light scratch on this one which you can see in the upper right of the last pic, could be buffed out. The price has been adjusted accordingly. Signed 'YK 08'.
