Here's another HUUUUUGE early gem from Yoshi, a piece that truly highlights his layered dot stack tech! This was one of the most complex and technically mind-boggling marbles the world had ever seen when Yoshi made this one back in 2012. The layers and layers of precision are hard to even comprehend, since this is glass control that has to go on for literally days on end to complete a piece like this. Yoshi is the only person alive at this point in time who has the drive to create majestic marbles that are as complex as this, and history will remember him as one of the greatest glass artists of a generation. I love the pieces like this where there is a nice amount of negative space between and around all of the stacking. It just adds an extra sense of wonder and awe to the finished piece in hand. There are just SO many dots that your mind is doing backflips while you're trying to take it all in while viewing it in hand! It has a bright, vibrant color combo that really sings, with juuuust a few red dots thrown in to tantalize. This is another true masterpiece, a marble that will stand the test of time and be celebrated for centuries to come! Signed 'YK 12'.
