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. This art piece is dedicated to a balanced ocean with lots of variety. It comes with a Petite Pane glass crab tied to the top of the gift box making it a special presentation.
This is our biggest shark in a diamond format with perhaps the most attitude.
With more than 500 species of sharks in our oceans, there is a huge variety of shapes, sizes and skills. The average adult length is less than 3 feet long, but it is the big apex predators we all remember & typically respond to with suspicion. The Caudal fin or tail is responsible for thrust and gives us a clue as to shark hunting habits. Sharks with a larger lower portion are typically attracted to fast swimming schools of fish - the tail configuration allows for a consistent fast pace. The sharks with a larger top portion prefer to cruise while hunting and then turn-on the momentum when a surprise attack might be valuable. Sharks with extremely long Caudal fins use them to stun their prey or fight off an attacker. All sharks of all sizes play an important role in keeping our oceans healthy. Without the big ones, we would probably loose all the lobsters, crabs and shell fish to the other critters that like to gobble them up.
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.
