Friend from the Sea

Leatherback sea turtles can dive more than 3,000 feet below the ocean's surface, but this one? He prefers to stay above sea level—preferably on your desk or coffee table. Michael Hudson crafts these beautiful aquatic sculptures from colorful layers of soda lime. As the glass is fired, extraordinary variations form from the turtle's head to his fins, and across his magnificent glass "shell." Though he's not quite the size of his real-life family members, he makes an impressive gift for sea-loving friends. Handmade in Kentucky.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
