Sea Turtle swimming over Sea weed by Glass & Fire Artist Ron Murphy.
This Sea Turtle sits on a glass base with sea weed behind. This is about 3 to 3 1/2 inches high. Glass blowing and glass sculpting is Ron's favorite form of art. Looking at the turtle shell is like looking under the ocean.

How its made: I use a table top torch especially made for forming and blowing glass. I put longs rods of both color and clear in front of a flame of about 2000 degrees and sculpture the glass to the desired shape. The glass has to stay hot in its entirety while I am working with it, then it is place in and kiln to slow cool it which make the glass much stronger. No molds are used it is all free hand.
I have been working with glass for some 50 years now. To this day I am very fascinated by the molten glass and the art that can be made as a result.

Ron was an artist before he began doing glass. His interest in all of nature and especially wild life has lead Ron on journey of study and observation of the natural world around him. He has a saying and it seems to hold true. "Creations and Creators are never without each other!"

This item may have been sold however the one you will receive will be very similar and the differences will only be very slight. Each is a work of art. Remember that they are not make by a machine.
We retain the original items as samples in order to copy them. The one you buy will be a different one than the one you see here on our site. Don't be discouraged though I have 50 some years making glass and yours will be as nice or nicer than the one in the photo.
