I fell in LOVE today!!

I know this is not crafting, but I just had to share. About three times a year, Palomar Community College here in San Marcos has an Art and Pottery sale. I always find some little knick knack or a fabulous bowl by Mr. Karady, but today, oh today, I found this treasure! I don't usually go for the blown glass items, but this one spoke to me. Just looking at it makes me breathless. I love the colors in this one. How many artists will venture into the orange zone?? Not many. I love how this person, MAD are the initials on it, made the sparkly swirly parts. You gotta enlarge the pic to see the sparkles. Oh and all the insets of the bits of color! Oh my god, I just can't stand it. I think I need to take a shower now. Oh, this is a vase. No, not pronounced vase, but VAHZ. It is classy, it is gorgeous and it was $70. Oh, I never paid that much for a piece of glass before, but this was an exception. I saw it, saw the price and walked away. Did that about 5 times, and then decided that it made me so happy, I must have it. This MAD person had lots of art there today, but this is the one that made my heart sing.
