This lovely mouse figurine is a part of our wide collection of cats, dogs, other animals, birds, insects and flowers glass miniatures.
These miniatures have been made in Ukraine, the country where glassblowing traditions are being passed through generations for about six centuries.
The main technique used for performing these miniatures is glassblowing technique called flameworking, or lampworking. This technique involves using a torch to melt rods and tubes of glass together and then blowing, twisting, and pulling them to acquire the desired shapes. The glass that is used is borosilicate, or pyrex glass. Borosilicate melts at a higher temperature than most of the glasses traditionally used for glass blowing and therefore needs to be worked in a torch.
