Crystal clear Glass female gymnast

Some time ago I made a Crystal Clear Glass female gymnast for someone. A lady came in a few days ago and asked if I would make some gymnast, I thought I would dig the photo out to remind myself what I did. Here’s a picture of it:

Glass Blue Chinese Dragon.

I was asked if I could make a Glass Chinese Water Dragon. So after thinking about it this is what I came up with:

Glass Blue Chinese Dragon.
 Here it is from the other side...
Blue Chinese Water Dragon

I came acros this Mandarin Chinese Joke - The Turtle And The Dragon on

English Translation

A little sea turtle was swimming in the middle of the ocean, when he bumped into something floating on the surface. The sea turtle had never seen anything like it, so he asked "What are you?"
The thing replied, "I am a dragon", then floated away.
One hundred years passed by, and the small sea turtle had grown into a great big sea turtle. He was floating on the surface, and once again he came across his old friend, who he hadn’t seen in one hundred years. He was amazed that, although he himself had changed greatly over the course of a hundred years, the dragon had hardly changed at all.
The sea turtle had always believed that he was the longest-living creature on earth, but here was something that lived even longer. He asked, "What kind of dragon are you, that you don’t change and don’t become old and feeble?"
"Oh! I am Styrofoam." :/ I had to read the explanation to see what it was about, but I like the idea of a syrofoam dragon any way.


The Mandarin word for Styrofoam is 保麗龍 / 保丽龙 (bǎo lì lóng). The last character of this word is 龍 / 龙, which means dragon.

Large cold cast Gray Wall Dragon

If you have been to the Glassblobbery Studio/Gallery, you will know we had a large cold cast grey wall dragon upstairs, which I really liked. Someone bought it! However we have managed to take delivery of another one. Good and scary. Here’s a picture of it:

Very Gothic. Who knows what will come next...

Glass Yellow Rose in a Glass Heart

A man emailed me to see I could make a glass yellow rose in a heart. The yellow metal on the tips of the glass rose petals is 22ct Gold.  The man was very pleased with the results. Hope you like it?

Gllass lurcher dog

I was asked to make glass Lurcher. So after some cogitation this is what I came up with:

Glass Lurcher Dog

Lurchers are like Greyhounds. Greyhounds can run at speeds of up to 45mph (72kmh) - making it only second to the cheetah as the fastest animal on land. I’m not sure what speed a Lurcher can reach, but I don’t think I would win a race with one.

 There may be another dragon next time...
