The Starfish Cluster is a vase shaped like a crown, made up of 22 starfish clinging to each other. Like a kaleidoscope of ocean life, this mesmerizing vessel features a bevy of hand-sculpted starfish clinging to a clear blown glass bowl. A thick layer of clear glass gives each starfish visual depth and a gleaming, fresh-from-the-sea appearance.
This Classic Starfish Cluster measures about 10” width x 10” depth x 13” height.
The Starfish Cluster is one of John's most popular sculptures. People are drawn to the vibrant colors and many have said that it reminds them of a vase of flowers.
