I'm thrilled with my recent discovery of marbles by glass artist Kris Parke, of Temptation Glass Art Studio. His marbles are often made in the classic styles such as onion skin and ribbon swirls. In his work you see both the German glass art tradition infused with a very stylized, yet controlled, modern evolution that never strays from the fact that these are marbles. What's more, all of his marbles appear to be at least 1 1/2" in size, perfect for display and a wonder to hold in the hand.
Considering that many of his marbles are for sale with the "Buy It Now" option, I expect one or two shall soon grace the top shelf in my collection.
