Fused glass and mixed media robot.  A little bit whimsical, a little bit serious ~ the perfect personality for this charming little robot.

This little guy belongs to a special collection, he is a Grumbler! Grumblers are especially chatty and known to escalate to complaining if left unattended. Their mouths are carefully wired so they cannot get too loud :)

Hand made from Bullseye Glass. Meticulously cut, layered, and hand-painted with kiln fired enamel. Fused and annealed in a computer-controlled kiln. Created from a mingling of glass: white opal, steel blue (strikes a pewter color), black opal, silver dichroic, and then sprinkled with dichroic frit for a slight shimmer. An amazing mixed-media robot ~ one of a kind art sculpture that is perfect to adorn your table or nestle on your bookshelf.

Completed with sterling silver plated wire and various adornments. Measures approximately 4 1/2 inches tall, 3 inches wide.

A week-long creation process that begins by selecting compatible glass sheets which are cut, layered and fused in a kiln (an average of 16 hours to fire). The new combination sheet glass is then cut and shaped with a glass cutter and diamond tools. Additional glass accents are layered along with hand-painted details then back into the kiln for another firing. Any imperfections are addressed and when necessary a third kiln firing is completed. Now assembly begins with specialty diamond tools, traditional hand tools, sterling silver plated wire and various adornments.
