Auction at @glass_orbits
, bid there!! Some of you have probably heard the sad news that Ben Quix @quixglass
and Sara Ivey @iveysara
lost everything, their home and their shop, in the recent Paradise/Camp Fire in Northern California. It's not easy starting over, but we've got some big hearts here in our community who want to help this dynamic duo, whose team creates some of the sweetest complex stringer stack boro murrine images that you'll ever see. (Super Shoutout!!) Maggie Linder @2lowriders
, marble and glass collector extraordinaire, is donating this piece to the cause and we can't thank her enough. Here's what Maggie has to say: "This truly outstanding pendant created by Mike Shelbo @mikeshelbo
and Devon Somerville @crunklestein
was purchased at the 2017 Michigan Glass Project to provide public school children with art classes. We would like to do a “Pay it Forward” auction and offer it once again to help others. There is a glass family that lost everything in the Paradise, CA fires, Ben Quix and Sara Ivey of Precision Pulls. The proceeds from the winning bid will be sent directly to them to help them get a new start with their lives." Thank you Maggie! This is one I like to call the CrunkleGoblin, featuring so many of Devin's milli chips worked into a killer Shelbo goblin. Legendary collab pendant to say the least! The piece is 1.96" tall and 2.80" wide (those ears!) and signed with Shelbo's 'S' and 2017 CAP'N. Let's dig deep glass fans, there are few causes this worthy!! I'll get a video posted a little later today.
Bidding starts at whatever with minimum $50 increments, and there is a reasonable reserve in place. Ends Thursday night, Nov 29th, at 7:00pm PST, 10:00pm EST in going once, twice fashion. Priority shipping is on me, PayPal or cash payments accepted. Best of luck everyone and THANK YOU!
