    Here is the pattern from Welz that resembles the marbled decor. The Tornado's surface seems hand-swirled like those nasty storms with names... so, while the marbled pieces swirl around the piece like a corkscrew these have twisted shapes or waves.

    The few characteristics of satin-flashed pieces are:
    1-Thin glass throughout their many layers
    2-When spun in your hand they make a sea-like sound
    3. They have many shades of iridescence- sometimes changing in different light
