Thresher shark made from German mouth-blown Glashutte Lamberts flashed opal glass, and Bullseye hand-cast opal glass.

So anyway...the light outside was practically gone when I snapped these fotos, resulting in an eerie post modern apocalyptic oceanic scene. It should prove equally funky at night as in daytime...that's what the brochure says, anyway.

The Thresher's body is 6" long with an additional 6" tail--it's about 3" from dorsal fin to pectoral fin. Here's what one young Turk had to say upon seeing this art piece:

"I really like the sense of movement and violence...a nice benevolent quality, yet an ominous prowler--captures the true nature of the Thresher. Looks like he bursted right out of oceania!"

Why so expensive? you ask...I'll tell you...This shark is made from the last piece of this strange wonderful flashed opal antique glass this side of that wormhole you've been kicking around inside your head. That's right...it's the last. The design can be mustered from a pedestrian opalescent without quite the same exotic prowl factor (give me a proverbial holler if you desire the same design in the frugal model)--price would be chewed in half, eh? Anything else? oh, Auntie Elsie says hello....
