One Realistic Glass Rainier Cherry Sculpture, Life-Sized

This listing is for One (1) realistic glass yellow cherry sculpture. Many glass cherries are shown in the pictures so that you can see them from all angles, and so you can see the possible variations in color. You may purchase more than one by placing several into your shopping basket before checkout. Your order will be carefully packaged with biodegradable plant fiber batting inside a 100% recycled paper gift box with a pretty red stretch bow.

Your yellow cherry sculpture will be the size you would find in the grocery store - about 1 inch (25mm) in diameter.

Depending on the amount of sun they have received, ripe yellow cherries can range from entirely yellow through shades of raspberry pink, to a dark reddish-pink in color. The lighter areas are where the cherry has been shaded by the leaves. You will be able to choose the color of each cherry you order as you put it into your shopping basket.

I make each of these solid glass cherry sculptures one at a time by melting a rod of yellow Italian glass onto a the end of a 16-gauge pure copper wire. Because the loop is embedded in the glass, the wire can never be pulled free from the cherry.

Your glass yellow cherry will have a translucent quality just like real cherries do. I create the surface blush of pink to darker red by applying from one to twenty coats of powdered red transparent glass. During this time-consuming process 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.

The photos above represent 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.

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.
