Sand Globe Creation

Sand Globe
 
Our Sand Globes are blown in the shop, by hand...annealed...and then a large entry hole is drilled in bottom of the globe.  The sand and shells are  then added,  plus a handmade base is applied,  to the assembly...sealing the unit.  We use ocean sand from various beaches ...our glass is purchased as cullet and is totally a Washington State creation.  We prefer not to color the glass, the thickness of the glass gives it a watery appearance.   (Iron content in the glass gives it greenish cast...when thick.)
 
We accept commissions to custom  build custom Sand Globes, using the customer's keepsakes that need  to be included.  If additional sand or shells are needed for appearance we'll work together at no additional charge.
