Art Glass Ornament: Dolphin
These colorful and festive treasures are perfect to hang on your Holiday tree!
What's not to love? Dolphins, called nai’a in Hawaiian, are cute, smart, and funny! Unlike the leaping Humpback whales that visit Maui each winter, dolphins are full time Maui residents that can be spotted at any time of year.
What’s more, the most commonly sighted dolphins on Maui—Hawaiian Spinner dolphins—can do up to seven full rotations when they jump up out of the water. Aside from the feisty, acrobatic spinners, other dolphins that live around Maui are the larger, more solitary Bottlenose dolphin and Pantropical Spotted dolphins that live in deeper waters.
To create each ornament, lampwork artists use an open flame torch to melt down glass rods and then delicately shape the molten glass.
Each Glassdelight ornament has an optional clear loop which allows you to choose whether to hang it on your tree, in a window or on a stand for year-round display.
