This one of kind hand sculpted glass starfish was created by John Gibbons of Eureka, California. It measures about 7.5" in diameter.

I try to capture the essence of the tide pool in this optical and organic colored glass. The starfish is created with an organic color pattern on the bottom that gets magnified from the thick optical layer of clear glass on the top, the starfish almost looks wet. The pattern on this particular star is called Murrini (or Murrine) and is an Italian glass technique where I take a glass cane (long rod of glass) and cut it in cross-sections to reveal a pattern that mimics the natural texture of the starfish in the wild. People have also said that it looks like barnacles on the starfish.
