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.
