Where else but Glassland would the above be considered a cool hood ornament? But what I really love are the people:

Actually, this is a member of the Oregon Glass Guild leadership debating matters of, well, leadership after a really interesting lecture by artist Andy Paiko. His work must be seen to be believed.

Fascinating guy, superb craftsman and really, really nice (so is his wife). Thanks, Andy.
