I recently returned from an amazing trip to SE Asia. In Bangkok we visited the Jim Thompson house/museum. He was one of the most famous Americans in Thailand and was responsible for reviving the silk industry there in the 1950-60s. Check out Jim Thompson -designer at Wikipedia. He led a very interesting life and disappeared without a trace on a trip to Malaysia in 1967. The glass art here was inspired by a trio of red umbrellas shading the side of his house that bordered a lovely garden and shade trees.
