In 1990 I went to the US & Canada for eight weeks.

While in San Francisco I took a tourist ferry ride around the Bay from Embarcadero to Sausalito and back.

In Sausalito I bought this vase at Petri's, I think.

The piece was meant to remind me of that time in the US when I first stumbled on American Studio Glass.

It's signed R Satava 1490 89.

It's 26 cm tall.

I liked the way he created rock art.

The interior is the most vivid iridescent peacock blue. It was different to the Orient & Flume and the other pieces that I had already bought at the airport in Portland.

I bought the biggest piece I could afford and hoped that I'd be able to carry it back safely to Australia.

Mission accomplished.

    Hi mon amie, Amie.
    Yes, it is quite narrow. It put it on my small stand.
    It's 5.5 cm (0.22 inches) at the base with a round ground pontil.
    As to the thickness of the glass at the rim, it is 3mm thick (0.12 inches)
