This is a very unusual double bottle form in a striking blue with an interesting zanfirico pattern in white. There is a significant degree of difficulty in pulling out the center and the entire piece, though hollow, is sealed.Electric Blue Stalactite is an excellent specimen from the work of Dan Alexander. The superb use of aqua and white in this stalactite is impressive. On a basic level, the abstract and geometric nature of this use of this zanfirico and hot blown technique in hotblown glass is a breathtaking statement.
