I spent a ridiculous amount of time ogling at Darby Holm’s Dichroic Cacti Bubbler at Jason Lee’s Goosefire gallery show in May, and it still stands out in memory the most of all the legendary work I saw that night.

This rare work of Darby’s and others can be found at Highpriorityglass.com, who carry an impressively extensive collection of the high quality glass art that you and I love so much.
