About a month ago, I received an email from a gentleman named Bill who lives in Des Moines. He had come across my blog post from August 2011 called Trash Day Treasure about a fabulous display case with a slanted glass front that I found discarded by the side of the road while on my morning walk. Bill contacted me to see if there was any chance I'd ever consider giving the case a new home. Unfortunately, all I could give him was the bad news that I'd already sold the piece when we moved to our cozy cottage in 2013.
At the end of his email correspondence, Bill attached a photo of colorful glass marbles and mentioned that when he retired, he taught himself how to make them. A marble collector for almost 30 years, Bill now fulfills his hunt addition by creating his own.
For your viewing pleasure, I present to you Bill's handmade marbles, each more beautiful than the next. Enjoy!
Aren't they stunning? Thank you, Bill, for allowing me to share these tiny works of art.
