A cute little handmade from glass yellow rubber ducky on a bubble acrylic plastic rod. Would make a great gift for any garden or plant enthusiast! Perfect for decorating your bathroom plant pots or for some fun and pop of colour out in the garden.
My lampwork artisan glass items are handmade by myself, Darrelle in my cosy little studio in South Devon, UK. Each one is made individually and shaped by hand so each one will come out slightly different, adding a touch of personal character.
Approximate Size: 2-2.5cm by 2-2.5cm. Comes on a 16cm long clear with bubbles acrylic plastic rod Quantity: 1 ducky plant stake
How it's made: The glass is melted until molten using a 1700° flame from a dual fuel torch. When the glass is hot and melted it acts like honey, the hotter it is the more it moves and drips. So, when the glass is acting like set honey, I can start wrapping it around stainless-steel rod and then its formed using both gravity and tools. Once it is complete it’s put into a kiln for several hours to bake then cooled down slowly, this is how the glass is hardened to make it durable.
