My collection of hand blown and lampwork miniature glass figurines include a dolphin, manatee, swan, hummingbird, shark, unicorn, alligator, seahorse, flamingo and a bird. Each tiny piece of art is completely unique and one of a kind; as they are made individually, one at a time, no two are ever exactly alike.I start each glass miniature figurine with a gather of clear hot glass, pulling it into the desired shape, and accent each miniature with a colored glass rod. I put the piece in the kiln to keep it warm while making the glass base by blowing a bubble from a glass tube. I blow out a hole at the end of the glass bubble and flare it out to make a nice base. I then take the warm piece from the kiln and attach it to the glass base. Finally, the finished piece goes back into the kiln to anneal it for strength and durability. Each glass miniature stands approximately 1.5 inches tall. These are the perfect addition to your shadow box or dollhouse, and make great gifts for collectors. Thank you for taking the time to look.
