      He's a really lovely glass trout- I love how clear and smooth he looks, like water itself. He also reminds me of a salmon leaping up a waterfall and maybe even a bear perched at the top of the waterfall ready and waiting!

      This beautiful Steelhead trout ( he’s anadromous, lives in the sea then heads to fresh water to spawn) is so lifelike. The artist did an amazing job of catching him “flying” up out of the water. The WWF is a wonderful organization!
      Great job, Jenni!

      Nice design and color. I went to that town/factory complex. Everything was shut down for Midsummer "day"....really, the weekend. Only the outlet store and gallery were open - and that was very fun to check out too :-) Fun to say "I was there".

      Thank you Lauren for the wonderful compliments & great insights, this fish is also like a salmon & I too can picture a bear in this pose, rising out of a stream with mouth open awaiting a fresh fish meal! The grey glass is very fluid like water as well. Hoff made many realistic fish designs including a wild salmon that I will be on the lockout for

      Eileen thank you so much for the marvelous compliments & background info on this trout, you grew up around such a natural paradise and I'm so grateful that you share this awesome knowledge with me. Yes the WWF is to this day a terrific & important wildlife conservation outfit, Hoff worked closely with them in the 80s on his glass animal series and it is always a delight to see all the realistic detail he puts into each piece

      MrsT thank you for the wonderful compliment, the detail on this piece is really great, from the open mouth to sculpted fins and jagged base, I really love it

      Mary my friend you are one lucky lady visiting Sweden, my envy has no bounds, sounds like you had an incredible time & one day I would love to see that land of the Northern lights! I would have spent my last $ at their outlet store and had a ball. So nice that you got to meet Elisabeth as well, showing & sharing your jewelry together must've been great :)
