This aquarium represents a family. The two larger fish represent with parents with 5 smaller fish for children. The lobster on the bottom is for a grandfather and the starfish scattered on the sand are for grandchildren. The starfish are loose and more can be added as the extended family grows.
I handmade and hand formed all the glass items in my studio. They are each unique to themselves. The top is a removeable stained glass topper acting as a dust catcher.
I love this idea of having a family aquarium - something different!
