In 1990 I went to the US & Canada for eight weeks. I took a 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. Indigenous. Lascaux. The interior is the most vivid iridescent peacock blue. It was different to the Orient & Flume and the other pieces that I 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.
