I collect blue glass. I have for many, many years. I collect both the turquoise type sometimes known as "electric blue" and this deep blue, which is "cobalt blue." I also love hanging lanterns and have some of them, done in brass. These are some of my treasures which combine the two: cobalt blue and metalwork. The two hanging lanterns in this drawing are in my studio. They are made in India. The other thing is a perfume bottle whose provenance I don't know, but it's a really cool design. This is an ink drawing with the blue added in Photoshop. The metalwork on the globe lantern at right is brass-colored but I decided to only do a 2-color rendering here. If the round lantern looks familiar, it is because you may have seen it in the "Design Toscano" catalog, a temptation for people like me who collect unusual stuff. I am still thinking of how to put a light in it that is not a real flame candle, which would be difficult to manage. Something with a futuristic LED perhaps.
