Summer Blues - part I

Sheurich West German Sapphire Blue Vase with Dappled Royal Glazing (LEO Design)

By my count, Midsummer is a little over a week away—and it's not to early to stop and appreciate the beauty of the summer season.

Shown above, a West German Modernist vase made by Scheurich in the 1960's or 1970's. It is dressed in the wonderful sapphire blue which envelopes the lucky bather who dives into the depths of the Mediterranean Sea—complete with gently-rising air bubbles. Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
