Blown Glass Boiled Peanut Submitted by angelpowell May 24th, 2011 this blown glass boiled peanut was made by Charleston artist Wm. Austin Norvell His website is www.austinnorvellart.com
I love that a peanut would be commemorated this way. Although it also looks like it could be a fish with the pointy end and and the flared out tail at the other. But I prefer to think of it as a peanut. Fish always get interpreted by artists but a peanut rarely ges this attention.
Is there an opening in it anywhere?
I have several plans for this series, but they all have an opening on one end. I’m working on one that hangs upside down as a pendant lamp. Another stands upright on a pedestal with a neon tube inside to make it glow bright pink/red.
Would love to see photos of all when ready!
