Fascinating Glasswork from West Coast Glass

Oh Twitter, how do I love thee?  Without you I might never have discovered West Coast Glass, and these absolutely awesome, utterly unique Jellyfish glass marbles!  These are sooooo cool!  They are sold separately, but I couldn’t resist sharing this particular image so you can see a variety of the designs available.

From Left to right:

Dark Blue Jellyfish:  An handcrafted flameworked borosilicate glass marble.
This jellyfish appears to have a flow and movement of the real thing!
The “hood” or top is a gorgeous blue with just a hint of yellow
and the long red tentacles delicately dangle in the clear glass.

Summer Colours Jellyfish:  An handcrafted flameworked borosilicate glass marble.
This jellyfish is cuter than the real thing!
The “hood” or top is done with soft summery colors
and the green tentacles delicately dangle in the clear glass.

Pointy Jellyfish:  A handcrafted flameworked borosilicate glass marble.
This jellyfish has a beautifully flawless look!
The “hood” or top is done with a white tipped blue,
and the soft blue tentacles delicately dangle in the clear glass.

Says Jazz of West Coast Glass:

“[Each] cute lil’ jellyfish is an handcrafted flame worked borosilicate glass marble. The artist starts with a glob of clear glass and a “slice” of colored dots, an implosion occurs and Ta Da…A jellyfish! Cuter than the real thing, and won’t ever smell bad! Sounds easy enough…Really the process is a mix of technical secrets, years of practice and skill… and sometimes a dash of luck and magic : ) Comes in a “take-out” package with a clear plastic stand.”

So, so, SO cool!
