Sometimes, the only use of an object is "being beautiful".

My very first glass dragonfly! I'm so happy with it! :squee:

Hopefully the next ones will be even better. I have lots of things I'll do differently.
I have no idea what to do with them though. Start a collection?
I doubt I'll dare even bring them to markets. Shipping them would be a nightmare.
Oh well. It's pretty. It's all I need right now! <3

Wow. Thats a really nice looking dragonfly! 

Is it soft glass, or boro?

This one is Boro. A medium I do not work much with, but I'll get there eventually for my sculptural work.

At the moment I do soft glass, furnace glass, and just a smidge of boro. :)

Beautiful. The b&w was a nice touch.

Thank you! It was quite difficult to photograph since it's completely clear so I figured colour was grabbing too much attention in the photo instead of just the shapes! :)

So pretty! I think to ship such a fragile art piece, you might have to hire someone who does packaging of such things professionally.

Thank you! That is a good idea!
Something like this would need it's very own padded little case.

This is just gorgeous. Where I'm at, we have a lot of dragonflies, and the array of colors is awe inspiring. Their my favorite insect. Beautiful sculpture. 😃

I love them. I adore them.. I once spend an evening by a little stream where they were mating. At one point I had three of them sitting on me! <3
Damselflies, I think they were.

Amazing. It reminds me of my childhood. I saw a giant one the size of my hand.
