      I though the little sticker at his feet was a hole for him to try and fish through and at first I thought how thoughtful!!! He's a great colour, I adore the bright electric blue tones, definitely giving me frosty vibes! The base is cool too- it's a really nicely sculpted ice rock and in glass looks really great and realistic too!

      Super comment Lauren thanks so very much, again I have to hand it to you, that small sticker looks to be a little fishing spot for this penguin esp the dark reflection in the second pic! I really love this bright blue color too, the photos were challenging as due to the top part being opaque vs the clear ice floe base, I wanted to be sure not to lose the detail on Mr Penguin, his round eyes, arms etc. Glad you enjoyed the finished product my friend :)

      Scott thank you for your wonderful comment, I do know you are a penguin lover as well with your fabulous cast iron pieces! This is the time of year when our penguin friends usually shine, tho with the global warming the temps are less wintry, and as for the holiday season it is also a bit off this yr - next will be better I'm sure

      Aw Thomas, totally grateful for that fabulous comment! I had a nice brite sunny day to take these penguin pix and do think he came off rather nicely, he's blushing at your kind compliment :)

      Right Kurt, it's always a chilly feeling whenever you see one of these ice walkers! Really glad you liked him and thank you for the fun and great comment

      Thanks yourneverright for enjoying this pretty blue & your very kind comment, the color "Brandywine blue mist" is a new one for me, that's Westmoreland's color name - to me, when I hear the term Brandywine I think of visiting my relatives in Delaware where that name is common, pretty country there

      Karen yes, penguins are always a bit comical when you see them scurrying across the ice with those webbed feet and their waddle, they surely are cuties - my faves are the cuddly looking Emperor penguin babies. Great comment as ever my friend, and very fun hearing your cute name for them which is akin to their Brazilian Portuguese name pinguim (I am not Braz-Port but used to have a couple Brazilian cable TV channels due to my love of their winter Carnaval parades, it was an education learning the language & admiring the culture). Stay tuned I have a really cute Brazilian animal my husband brought me back from a business trip which will be posted soon

      Thanks MrsT & BB2 for the kind love and support, I am truly grateful to you

      MrsT thanks so much for your super compliment, that frosted glass penguin & clear base were very difficult to take pix of but after many tries I finally got it right!

      Thanks Ted & Kevin for the love for this polar penguin, he surely looks chilly sitting on the ice! Appreciate it guys & hope your holiday was great

      Amazing and stunning color on this beautiful penguin.
      We had a guy at work we called “el penguino” because of the way he walked. It was done with love so he took it as a compliment.
      Stunning piece, love it.

      clockerman thank you for the fab & fun comment, I love the story of your friend "el penguino" I'll bet he waddled when he walked lol! It's nice when people have a sense of humor & don't get offended, my husband is a great kidder but sometimes I have to stop him & say hey, enough already :) I'm really glad you liked this blue glass penguin, it took me a long time to get good pix as the mismatched glass (clear & frost) was challenging. Appreciate the love it too! Have a great New Year, happy & healthy
