Here is the amazing 'Night Flower' from Yoshi, an early marvel that incorporated dichro inside the piece, and has stunning surface dot stacking instead of his more typical layered stacking that he started doing a short while later in his career. Every aspect of this marble is mind-boggingly beautiful, and you'll have a dickens of a time trying to decide which side of the marble to display, ha! A small number of his early pieces showcase Yoshi's non-layered dot stacking and masking, and this one is definitely the best one I've ever seen. The flower side is WAAAAY better in hand, with great depth to the dichro behind the flower, and in the design of the flower itself. The flower part is actually the precursor to Yoshi's layered dot stacks, so you get the best o both early worlds in one incredible marble here. Check out the video of this one on my Instagram page @glass_orbits and you'll get a better idea of just how awesome that dichro looks with the depth behind the flower. This is an extra special piece of Kondo history, and something you'll want if you know and understand the history of this incredible glass artist's work! Signed 'YK 09'.
