"Fishing with my Dad"
This handmade lampwork marble features a core of pink sunset skies over an aqua creek. Two murrine fishes are swimming in the lake while one dives towards the fishing line. I've drawn a father and son tabby cats in their boat using hair thin glass stringer drawn freehand at the flame and murrine details for their eyes and nose. The orange father tabby is holding on to the net while the grey son tabby holds on to his fishing pole.

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.
