Cowboy’s new series is really raising the bar for minitubes- I’ve never seen any with so much cold working! This very special collaboration with Sleek made primarily out of Illuminati is a prime example of just how much effort and precision both of those artists puts into their work. Sleeks’ five sections on this piece are in the new style of reticello that he has been somewhat focused on lately, which feature gorgeous white lines surrounded by blue, green and red accents. The way the retti section on the base terminates is gorgeous, and the fact that you can see it through the tube is an added bonus! The craftsmanship on this beaker and the entire series in fact is second-to-none. As if faceting the top, both joints, and the matching bowl wasn’t enough, there is a mind blowing and huge facet on the back that focuses on two stacked opals. The resulting effect is simply impeccable! The flame-sculpted horns on the piece and bowl compliment the piece perfectly, as do the three milli attachments, one of which has an opal stacked perfectly over the center of it.
