    I own quite a few animals made by Japanese glassmakers but Marti animals have a style of their own.

    They like very rounded shapes with an almost cartoon quality to them, and often include multiple colours in the clear. Clever people.

    The heffalump is 10 cm (4in) tall, the (appropriately dopey) penguin is 30cm (12in) tall.

      I know I've seen these in my travels but never knew the maker. Now I wish I had bought them.

      Thanks Rose - glad they appeal!

      Mike you know these weren't imported here but I have seen them for sale in the States (and lots of money on Ebay) so they must have been exported to there.
      Now you know they can be added to your huuuuge list of things to look for!

      Stunning. Imagine that basically formed from sand, such things are created.

      Both very cool Karen, but I particularly love the penguin!

      Penguin vs elephant - not sure who's winning here!

      Thanks for loving the melted sand guys:
      Jem and
