Larry VRBA made this huge 8" brooch in the likeness
of my
Morning Glory
logo. Need I say it is one of my all-time favorites? It
is so three-dimensional that it’s almost impossible to photograph well.

the center. I was told this piece
might have been made for a Broadway show. Looks big enough to be true.
