    David Rosenfeldt H2Orbs - signature cane

    I really need a good photo of the signature cane used by David Rosenfeldt in his H2Orbs. I have been researching and compiling a pictorial reference of signature canes used by glass artists since 1840 through the present. The reference work is now well over over 850 pages and 1650 illustrations. I published a book in 1997 on paperweight signature canes and now have updated that work to include bead, marble and button markers with the publication in 2007 of the expanded book on CD. I am continually updating the reference as new information surfaces. I would love to get a detailed high resolution photo of whatever signature canes David might have used, but if your photography skill are limited in talent or time, would you David to send me a chip of the cane so I can take my own photos. I would be happy to trade you/him for a copy of my current 850 page work on CD (e-book).

    hI! we have a number of David's liquid filled orbs. and kaleidoscopes, none have a signature cane. we have other examples of his as well, and several very special ones. to the best of our knowledge, David didn't use a signature cane. the ones we have are all signed / inscribed. All of our Ro Purser marbles DO have a signature canes as do the jesse taj marbles.
    David is not doing any glass right now, and no longer has a shop.

    Re: David Rosenfeldt H2Orbs - signature cane

    Land of Marbles has this on their website: "David flame sculpts each twisting, turning, object inside the glycerin-filled blown glass orb, providing movement and infinite combinations. Glycerin is a colorless, dense liquid which causes the glass bits to tumble in slow-motion, adding a dream like element to experiencing one. A piece of signature cane is used to permanently seal the "belly button" through which the contents are passed." What do they mean? What does the piece look like that seals the fill-hole on the H2O orbs?

    well I looked at all of the ones we have and they have no signature cane.They have a clear plug, with a little star in it. But not a 'signature cane'. I talk to him on a fairly regular basis. I will ask. :-)
    the plugs on the kaleidoscopes have the same hard to see star. I will try to get a picture for you tho!

    Thank you. It may be that David uses the star cane as a signature indicia.
