This sculpted glass sea turtle measures about 9.5 inches at its widest and about 9.5 inches tall. The shell and fins are made just like my starfish, with a thick layer of clear glass on top of a thin layer of organic colored glass on the bottom. I call this a barnacle back turtle, because of the 3-D barnacle like pieces of glass in the shell of the turtle. The base of the turtle is a very thick creating undulating and optical colors. Notice the ocean mist splashing up the side next to the starfish.
I have been working with glass for 19 years and have fixated on ocean creatures for the past 10.
