Angler Fish (Diceratias trilobus)

10.5 x 10.5     I am Isabel Green, a glass artist based in Cape Cod, MA, and I'm excited to share my rendition of the Angler Fish with you. This fish is hand blown using multiple furnace work techniques; blown and sculpted. Individual pieces of molten glass were shaped and added to the body in order to execute each feature. Once complete, the fish was put to wait in a hot kiln, and l fashioned the rock base using a sand casting technique. The two pieces were then connected with glass and the finished sculpture was placed into an annealing oven to cool. I hope you will be enchanted by my representation of the angler fish and her bioluminescence lure deep down on the ocean floor!
