I m very pleased with this piece. It has such a nice weight and feel to it. The colors are very neutral and calming. It looks very cute on my stand. I saw that I ordered the last one. I hope you make more because I m sure others will enjoy it as much as I do. Thank you!

The gentle light cast by this is perfect to create an intimate calming atmosphere. Especially effective when displayed in multiples. Buy more than one - you wont be sorry!
