Turbo the Tortoise moves at a slow pace. He’s very shy and usually hides in his shell. Turbo’s best buddy is Bailey the Beetle who always gives him the confidence to come out of his shell and try new things. Turbo enjoys eating bananas and watching the grass grow. He’s a terrific listener and gives great advice to friends in need. He was born August 14, 2009. Each tiny sculpture comes in a clear plastic case with a magnifying glass cap. Sculpture is very small, approximately 3/4 inch.
Looking Glass sculptures are hand crafted using glass rods. They are heated and melted by a gas-powered torch. The torch worker has a high degree of control over how soft the glass becomes, as a result they're able to create pieces with immaculate detail and complexity.
