I am sending this photo in response to a question raised when the last group was posted on the blog. I was familiar with these being a special piece by Joel Phillip Myers in what my reference books refer to as the Sommerso style wherein layers of glass create the final look, in this case Green, Ruby and Crystal. The story that I have heard connected with these goes that Myers created these himself as he was developing his skills and becoming a master glassblower himself. The pieces are all hand scribed on the bottom JPM and Blenko. Blenko in recognition that the material used was Blenko glass but these were Myers own personal pieces. I am fortunate enough to have four sets that I have collected over ten years of Ebaying. The goal I had was for each of my girls to one day each have one set of both colors. They are pricey but they do come up from time to time on Ebay. Good luck to anyone hoping to put together a set.
