Manta Ray Figurine of Hand Blown Glass on Coral

This hand blown glass manta ray sculpture is a unique work of art created by Kevin Prochaska, Disneyland glass blower for 10 years. Figurine is mounted on artificial coral. Gliding through the sea like a bird in flight, this huge ocean dweller epitomizes grace in motion. Underwater creatures are one of my favorite subjects as they lend themselves so beautifully to the glass medium. I make the sculpture entirely by hand from borosilicate crystal. The brilliant rainbolly to the glass medium. I make the sculpture entirely by hand from borosilicate crystal. The brilliant rainbow of colors is created when I apply 24k gold to the glass while it is still molten. This piece measures 5 inches tall including the coral base and the ray's wing spread is 5 inches across. All coral used in my sculptures is artificial and shows off the colors in the glass beautifully. The coral is exact in every detail including its weight of nearly one half pound. I personally sign each sculpture and an attractive information card trimmed in gold foil is included with your purchase. read more
