Dani, thank you for posting pics of your contemps. I enjoyed looking at them. You inspired me to show some of mine. A few years ago I bought a cabinet with 8 shelves. I thought I could put all my contemps in it and have room left over for more purchases. I was quite dismayed to fill it immediately with no empty shelves left over. I have no room for more cabinets so my solution was to crowd them together. They are so close that many are hidden from view. Weldon's solution is "Stop buying". LOL

Well, I haven't tried to post since the board changed and I find that I don't know how to post my pics. I need some help. Edna

I went to the help section that Lou has posted and tried to follow the directions. I didn't get it right. Sorry, I can't add pics.

I did get a thumbnail to post, but I want full size pics. Don't know how to do that.

Eugene Rain, Sabina Boehm, Dan Grumbling, and others.

Most of the marbles on this shelf are Robert L. Hamon. A few are students of his that did marbles in his style. I also have an elephant scupture here and a vase or two.

On this shelf are some Julia Powell, Kris Parke, Andrew Brown, Steve Willis, and others I can't ID because they are so tiny in my pic. In the back on Peltier candleholders are some Greg Hoglin. Also some Stephen Pope, Gateson Recko, and a lot of Calvin Sugita.

Boyd Miller, Ken Schneidereit,

I'm doing something wrong, but I did get some of the shelves to appear a little larger. This is 5 of the 8 shelves. Edna

and then there's 2 shelves in a built in display too. lol. there's a few of those pictured at LOM. mainly Ro's stuff, and you can sorta see the shelf that's mainly Salazar. then there's the stuff upstairs... and an apothecary jar filled with contemps...holy crap it's everywhere!

To answer, the V8 was made by fulton 'Tony' parker, out of oregon. it's probably 20 years old. or close to!

really nice marbles! Dani, I have them everywhere too. Cases that hang on the wall, cases made to look like the antique jeweler's case, boxes that sit on shelves. I really should listen to Weldon, but when I say that to Brett Young his reply is always "I don't think I like Weldon". I hope Hot House comes to Sistersville again this year, cause I want more. LOL

NO kidding! Got to get that camera.

Alan, in your second photo there's a large-ish marble on the right, pinkish, or even irridescent pinkish? With stars? Who did it? Can I have it? Sorry, got carried away - - - I'll settle for who did it --

Ann: Are you referring to this piece?

If so - it is Doug Sweet/Karuna Glass. It is a variant of his packed murrini - with an etched stars outer surface that form windows through which you can view the murrini. Sort of like a kaleidoscope. He may still make them.

Yes. OMG.

I may have to rest awhile after looking at this one - - - If he still makes them I might be forced to break my "nothing bigger than 1-1/8" rule that has served me so well for years. Just this once. Unless of course you just send yours to me out of the goodness of your heart.

If not, I forgive you.
