Bar Cats Marble m141
This handmade lampwork marble features a core of soft pastel beige pink under a thick layer of clear encasement to magnify. I've drawn two cats sitting at the bar together enjoying their drinks. One is a tabby with a wash of transparent topaz orange coloring drinking a martini. He has green eyes and a pink nose in murrine. The second is a fluffy tuxedo cat drinking a beer and laughing. He might have had one too many, but hey, they're having a good time together sitting at the brown bar with a bowl of peanuts.

All my Marbles are annealed in a computer controlled kiln for strength and durability. These are handmade so there might be a slight variance in size. My marbles are all made in soft glass, so they are much softer and have less surface tension when melted than borosilicate. Because of the handmade nature, there can be some imperfections. I do get these as perfectly round as I can, but they are handmade.
My pictures are taken in a lightbox with an SLR camera to get the best representation of my work. There are still variances in monitors and so forth. If you have any questions or need more pictures, please let me know.
Thank you for your support and thanks for looking.
