The Upright Shorebird Decoy - Polka Dot is by acclaimed artist Darren Petersen. This sculpture is a creative and playful reimagining of the classic shorebird form, made using the artist's unique glassblowing technique. The piece is decorated with a fun polka dot pattern that pops against a shimmering silver background, creating a dynamic and lively design. The sculpture's smooth surface and bright orange beak add to its playful character. To achieve the captivating crackled texture, the artist, Petersen, uses a specialized glassblowing technique called 'thermal shock.' This method involves immersing the hot glass into cold water and then reheating it to integrate the intricate patterns into the design. The vibrant colours are achieved by layering coloured glass and carefully controlling the temperature, ensuring the hues remain bright and distinct within the sculpture.
