The antique glass penguin was broken and put away years ago. The glass was discovered and the search was on to find some one to repair it. The one fin was broken off and many of the small pieces were lost. That Steuben Crystal penguin held memories of years go by.
I used a piece of Steuben Crystal to sculpt the replacement wing because of the color . Steuben is forty nine percent lead and very clear. The lead also makes it very soft so I have to use the very best cerium oxide for the final step in the polishing process.
Broken neck and ear no problem .
Some days I work on animals only my shop looks like a Zoo
