I promised I would share pictures of one of my Christmas presents, so here it is...
I have always had a fascination for artisan glass - ever since I was a young teenager and looked forward to a visit to our local fair where I would get to watch a glass-blower at work. I even saved my allowance for months so I could buy a piece of his work. Remember the glass swans that you filled with coloured water which would then raise and lower in the swans' neck according to the atmospheric pressure? I loved it!
This piece was a gift from one of my friends and how I wish I could have watched how they made it! The base is a piece of driftwood and the glass was melted/formed over the wood.
Here you can see the two pieces.
Obviously there are no two alike. The glass isn't 'perfect' either - there are bubbles in it, which only add to the charm!
