Also, where's edmorel for the cock and balls comparison?

NVM. Vase:

Zorzenoni’s research is focused on materials and their respective limits and boundaries – his recent Crystal Ball vases for Cappellini are an exquisite visual manifestation of this. The Crystal Ball vases function as multi-media sculptures in materials that engender a mixed metaphor – ephemeral, large thin glass “bubbles” are seemingly “tethered” by the solidity of their wood bases. Akin to balloons, it’s almost as if the base is “blowing air” upward creating the spheres with the rational expectation that like balloons or bubbles they will eventually “pop” or “dissolve.” This juxtaposition and associated tension of “solid versus transparent” and “fleeting versus grounded” is beautifully expressed in the designer’s choice of materials.

The Crystal Ball vases are available in three versions – a single sphere in green glass with a shorter base; a single sphere in clear glass with a taller base; and a double vase that features two spheres – small green and large clear. All bases are composed of white-stained ash wood with internal metal support frame. All spheres are composed of hand-blown borosilicate glass. All spheres feature an integrated stem that is concealed when inserted within the ash base to further the illusion that they are precariously resting.

Yes. Also an exquisite visual manifestation of the limits and boundaries of materials.

I don't think I would have red walls AND a red floor. I mean, pick one...

It's definitely not the most soothing combination, but to be serious for a second, it actually helps tie together all the random stuff they sell. Some pieces are so bizarre or bold that they would overpower everything else against a more quiet, neutral backdrop.

With any luck, we'll get it Tuesday. The same day we're scheduled to get our albino yeti hide and plant balls.
