The glass fairy cometh

Laurence Pocztar of lainezinzin has always been my sole inspiration in fiber spinning. Having gotten into glass arts, I didn't expect to ever find my glass fairy, since -- looking at all the books that has come out in the US and Japan, and surfing on the web -- I didn't find any that really blew me away (Corina Tettinger of Passing the Flame came very close) until I saw the freeform glass beads of Sarah Hornik of Tel Aviv.

Sarah has come out with two ebooks: Sarah's 12 Favorite Color Schemes and Think Pink. I just love the colors and the asymetry of her glass beads. They look so sumptuous that gazing at them simply brings such delight!
