Frog Dichroic Vortex Marble (41.5mm marble)
This exquisite marble has been lamp-worked (made in the flame) with durable and scratch resistant borosilicate (Pyrex) glass, then kiln annealed overnight for maximum durability. There’s a great attention to detail in this glass frog paperweight / sculpture. The frog body is an opaque green glass with black spots. It comes to life with detailed features and realistic eyes, perched upon and protecting his favourite treasure – a vibrant dichroic glass vortex marble. The marble (made by Timothy Mazet) has bright dichroic colours in red, blue and gold, changing direction before spiralling off into infinity an the colours shift when viewed from different angles. The vortex inside the marble appears to be much deeper than possible. You must see this in person to appreciate this illusion. Signed and dated by the artist.
There is a flat spot on the bottom so it stands on its own, so no marble stand is needed with this marble and will not be supplied.
