This listing is for One (1) glass Bing Cherry sculpture. Each individual cherry is priced at $50.00.
Many sculptures are shown in the pictures so that you may see them from all angles and see the possible color variations.
Your life-sized Bing Cherry sculpture will be about the size you would find in the grocery store - about 1 inch in diameter.
Depending on the amount of sun they have received, ripe Bing Cherries can range light red through deep red to almost black-red. You will be able to choose the color of your cherry sculpture when you put it in your shopping basket.
Your glass Bing Cherry will have a speckled surface just like real Bing cherries do. I create the effect by applying a mixture of five different colors of powdered glass to the surface of the hot glass cherry. Each coat must be melted in smoothly before applying the next. Since no paint is used on the glass cherries, the color will not rub, flake or chip off. No two glass cherries are ever exactly alike.
I make each solid glass cherry sculpture one at a time by melting a rod of Italian glass onto a loop of 16-gauge copper wire. Because the loop is embedded in the glass, the wire can never be pulled free from the glass.
The photos above are representative of the glass cherries I make in this style. THE SCULPTURE YOU RECEIVE WILL BE SIMILAR TO, BUT NOT EXACTLY THE SAME AS, THE ONE(S) SHOWN ABOVE.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD
These glass cherries are lifelike enough to fool adults at first glance. Never display these glass cherries where they could be confused with real fruit. Never put them in your mouth, even for fun, or allow anyone else to do so. Make sure to keep them out of the reach of children of any age.
