Another of my favourite Nanny Still series (well, I've got so many favourites from her!): NEPTUNA.

I guess what I like the most of it, apart from its amazing shade of green, is the textures, combining strips at the top (made with a saw edge) and some "dots" at the bottom... they're some of those items one likes to look at closely for hours!

I'll be posting more pictures of this series!

    Yes, texture is one the most important things in this design. Those two are great, but do you think of the narrowing in the candleholder? It's great to hold the candle... such a good design!

    Well, as i see it the whole body of the bottles had the same texture, but somehow the bubbles were blew later and as the surface expanded it lost part of the texture... it seems to be like that in every design...

    In that case, whenever you visit Madrid you should come and visit the "Austrohungaro Museum of Glass"... I'll give you a complete tour ;)
