This lovely octopus miniature is a part of our wide collection of glass birds, insects and animals, which have been made in Ukraine, the country where glass making traditions are being passed throught generations for about six centuries.
Our master artisants from Lviv, Ukraine, express their high artistism in creating those amazinly beautiful glass figurines, which are produced in limited quantities, so they are especially presious and valuable to anyone's collection.
The technique of glass figurines performance is lampworking, one of the more difficult techniques of glass making, because it requires precision, special masterly and artistic taste. This technique involves using a torch to melt rods and tubes of glass together and then blowing, twisting, and pulling them to acquire the desired shapes. The glass that is used is borosilicate, or pyrex glass. Borosilicate melts at a higher temperature than most of the glasses traditionally used for glass blowing and therefore needs to be worked in a torch.
Every figurine is being shaped by master's hand under propane flame.
Every one is unique.
Measures of the miniature are : 6 X 5 cm. The dimensions many slightly differ because of 100 % hand work.
