These lifelike sculptural glass blueberries make a beautiful art display. Each berry is handmade from colored glass rods and no two are exactly alike. A mixed grouping contains a wide variety of sizes and degrees of ripeness. The final touches of realism can include a few berries with imperfections such as stems or little brown spots. They look even more lovely combined with the other glass berries and fruits that I make.
I create the coloring details with powdered glass that is permanently melted into the surface of each glass blueberry. Any “stems” are made of copper wire which is imbedded into the glass. These tiny treasures will last as heirlooms for many generations to come.
