Snail Figurine of Hand Blown Glass

Hand blown glass snail figurine is a dazzling collectible snail sculpture, a wonderful gift. Kevin Prochaska, Disneyland glass blower for 10 years is the artist. An artist often finds beauty in nature's shapes. I remember that as a child I would collect the empty shells of this simple animal and marvel at all the subtle variations. I hope I have done justice to this animal's charming characteristics. I make the sculpture entirely by hand from borosilicate crystal. The brilliant rainbow of colors is created when I apply pure gold to the glass while it is still molten. Snail measures 3.5 inches long, 2 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide.
