This lovely figurine expresses all futures of donkey's entire appearance, with his half-lifted ear, bended tail and always surprised look. This donkey is a part of our wide collection of birds, insects and animals glass miniatures, which have been made in Ukraine, the country where glassblowing traditions are being passed through generation for about six centuries.
The main technique used for performing these miniatures is glassblowing technique called flameworking, or lampworking. 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.
There decorative articles will beautify your house and attract enthusiastic looks of your guests with their smooth and soft lines, expressiveness and artistism, elegant detailing and playful shapes.
Handsomely crafted during the many-stepped production, hand-sculptured glass figurines will take an honoured place in your collection or make a perfect gift for glass collectors or curio cabinet enthusiasts.
