This lovely pig figurine is a part of our wide collection of glass miniatures of dogs, cats, other animals, amphibians and insects.
These miniatures have been made in Ukraine, the country, where glassblowing traditions are being passed through generations for more then six centuries.
The main technique used for performing these miniatures is glassblowing technique called flameworking, or lampworking. This technique involves using a torch to melt rods and tubes of glass together and then blowing, twisting, and pulling them to acquire the desired shapes. The glass that is used is borosilicate, or pyrex glass. Borosilicate melts at a higher temperature than most of the glasses traditionally used for glass blowing and therefore needs to be worked in a torch.
Our master artisants express their high artistism in creating those amazinly beautiful glass figurines, which are produced in a limited quantities, so they are especially presious and valuable to anyone's collection.
Measures of the miniature are : 3 x 5 cm. Dimensions may slightly differ because of 100 % hand work.
