But, being the Christmas season, that is what I am saying to myself when I see this last piece of the glass cake decorations. What a marvelous achievement ~ there is so much going on! A precious pup has run away and is absent from the left side of the horse, but other than that, the piece is Divine~ all made from glass~ the animals, the tack, the reigns, wheels of the carriage~ even the whip!
The longer ones looks at this piece, the more you cannot help but love and admire it~ from a technical point of view, I cannot make out where the lampworker held the pieces to make them~
Everything here is in motion~ there are no lifeless statues. The dog is running~ with legs fully outstretched. The horse with mane and tail whipping from the wind and legs at a gallop in front of the driver, who is not sitting but standing in the carriage and seems to be 'mid whip'....they must be on their way to a very important celebration!
If you look closely, you can see part of the horse's harness connecting to the center front of the carriage~ no details were left out! Its just fantastic and utterly amazing that it is not a broken pile of rubble! I think it is obvious it is my favorite of them all~
