    PADirtDigger, your glass piece is pretty creative too, it does resemble some aspects of Tussinger's triple basal notched pieces.

    The masters of this type of stone working was the Mayan's. They used Obsidian which is much easier to chip but also easier to break, their work was much larger in size and detail. To do this type of work you have to be a master of and understand the basics of fracture mechanics and have a steady hand, good tools made for each small notch and good support for your work piece. These piece are nice and way above anything that most knappers can do, but what the Mayans did, makes these pieces look like beginners art. Either way this man was an artist before and above his time and kept a lost art alive.
    If you want to live life on your terms, you need to learn to crash and burn.
