Art Glass Sculptures ‘The Most Charming Creatures’ by Roberta Mason
Bring the beauty of marine life into your home with these incredible art glass sculptures by Roberta Mason.
Nature, and in particular water, are constant sources of inspiration for Roberta which led her to develop these stunning pieces. Ocean creatures and the drawings of the German biologist, Ernst Haeckel inspired these art glass sculptures.
‘Ohana’ is a delightful Hawaiian term for family, for being bound together in loving cooperation; to be responsible for and to remember one another. It is the perfect sentiment for this work – ‘The Most Charming Creatures’. The lives of these marine creatures, that generate most of the air we breathe, inspires Roberta. We all must remember them and take better care of their home, our oceans!
Many small pieces of murrini make up these glass creatures. Each one is unique but similar – like family. They stand on bases of fossilised limestone – on the shoulders of their ancestors.
Admire the beautiful domed shape and the delightful oceanic blue shades. Each sculpture comes with a light stand(battery operated with remote control). The light projects into the room making the piece come ‘alive’.

Roberta’s relationship with glass and water could best be described as a passionate love affair. She creates works of art that contain depth and inner narratives by understanding the properties of glass. Using traditional glass techniques, in non-traditional ways, her unique, sculptural glasswork and installations capture a snapshot of life. The glass ‘breathes’ life into the work.
An artist with unstoppable energy, she takes her inspiration from Aristotle and his quote “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”
