SET IT ON THE BURNER FOR A SEC, HON...
of the subtler exhibits in the museum, the beauty
of this piece is in the delicate "trailers" at
the base. Set on a hot burner, this plastic decanter
originally was completely fused to the steel burner
thingy that goes over the flame. As the fused work
of art was lifted into the air, the burner thingy
slowly, exquisitely descended from the decanter,
creating the beautiful streamers of plastic you
now see in the picture.
