White Barnacle Turtle on Green Coral
Art Glass Sculpture
Created by John Gibbons
Hand-sculpted glass turtle swimming on tide pool green coral. Full of movement, the turtle is swimming over the coral with its front fins bent upwards and back fins kicking. The shell of the turtle is created with a murrini pattern, which the artist layers with clear glass to enhance the optical effect and give the appearance that the shell is wet. Each piece is unique and will vary.
