Don Shepherd designer piece
Just wanted to share this with you and your readers. I stumbled upon this Don
Shepherd designer piece mis-listed a couple of months ago. I couldn't hit the
Buy-It-Now button fast enough. I cut a deal with Shelley that she would hold it
until my birthday in January. For once I couldn't wait for that day to roll
around. I hadn't seen one of these except on the old Blenko Museum webpage that
showed this piece in an exhibit in honor of Shepherds work shortly after his
untimely death. Maybe one day I will be able to add the bowl that I saw once on
Ebay several years ago. For now though I will just to just enjoying this
addition to my Shepherd grouping.
Hope you enjoy,
