This and the rhino you posted (which one cannot comment on), are awesome!
Were these made with a mold?

I suppose you must be feeling much better now too? :) I'm enjoying your adventures.

yeah see below for explanation of making process. i recon they're pretty cool. the guy couldn't work out why i didn[t like his baroque flower fruit platter (it had angels and everythign!) though....


not feeling any better, just found pharmacuticals, and masking the issue. huzzah ;)

These are really great - they look too clear for pate de verre but I can't think of how else you would get the very fine details. How did you make them?

i didn't! these were done with (by hand) at a chinese factory, and they are cast, pretty easy really.

they even took a mold of the orginal CAT model (actually given permission! - these were company awards) then made waxes, plaster moluds around the wax, steamed out the wax, and then cast glass into them.

i'm interested to work with the company tho, they think my ideas are interesting, and at this stage aren't asking for heaps of money (being white sure has advantages!)

stay tuned.. ;)
