I received a gift today from my friend, Chris, from Luxembourg. It's a beautiful ceramic piece than can be used as a vase or a candle holder. The Italian artist who made this is Fabrizio Tranquilli. You can check him out here: (http://www.artedellaceramica.net/node/118).
I met Chris in 1991 when I studied in Luxembourg and we've been great friends since then. I feel grateful to have made such a good friend.
