This hand made glass starfish was sculpted from molten glass to resemble the sparkle of the waves lapping against the Coronado shores. Small bits of iron pyrite and mica are found in the sand in Coronado creating a sparkle and shimmer in the sun light. I used pink dichroic glass to imitate this beautiful phenomenon. An earthy tide pool blue is imbedded into the glass behind the dichroic to resemble the salty water. While the starfish is molten the legs are bent so that it can grip a shelf or desk like a rock off the shore of the Hotel Del.
