Purple Globe, originally uploaded by LeggNet.

A couple of weeks ago I posted a photograph of this purple globe sitting on top of my car. The post included a question about reflections vs. shadows and that the glass globe was hand blown. What the post failed to mention was that my beloved brother-in-law Tyler had created this piece of art (Tyler sarcastically thanked me for giving him credit when I saw him this past weekend). Click here to view the original post.

Tyler and his wife Michelle began learning the art of glass blowing last year and have advanced quickly to a very impressive stage. In fact, the orb picutred here is actually one of their rejects. To see some more of their blown glass, visit their company’s website at www.foreverfurnitureinc.com and click on glass.

Did I mention that the piece of hand-blown glass featured in this capture was created by Tyler… :)
