With an almost endless collection of nature inspired designs, these squares and rectangles of repurposed window glass can fit in almost anywhere... a window, a porch, a mirror, even a tree. Our glass has a unique way of handling light and the most popular way of seeing it is through our Light Catchers. The glass is handcut to fit the original artwork, balanced on the handmade mold and then kiln fired for at least 9 hours. To finish the piece, it is hand drilled, secured to a silver swirl hook and then gift boxed.
The Latin name for these fanciful creatures - Hippocampus - is a combination of "horse" and "sea monster" leaving artist's throughout the ages plenty of room to embellish their imagery. This extravagant version features spikes reminiscent of a seahorse's body armor. Since seahorses prefer temperate waters, they are a standard symbol for warm tides and sandy shores.
PLEASE NOTE: Each artwork creation will be unique - not an exact duplication of the piece pictured here since they are crafted by hand in window glass using similar sized art. The level of beauty, attention to detail, and the pleasure of how our glass feels in your hands will be the same. If you'd like to see the exact pieces we have in stock before purchasing, we're happy to provide photos at your request.
