Lobster Buoy Ornament

Maine’s coastal waters sport colorful lobster buoys which belong to the local lobster fishermen. Each person has a different color and design to mark their string of traps sitting on the ocean floor. Lobstering is hard work and I, for one, appreciate the people who lobster because there is nothing quite like fresh Maine lobster! Decorate your tree with a Maine lobster buoy. Colors and design vary.

Our ornaments make great gifts for co-workers, your boss or staff, friends, teachers, and neighbors. Perk someone’s day up by giving them a handcrafted ornament. It’s a great way to say, “I’m thinking of you.” or “Thank you for all you do!” They also make great stocking stuffers. Start your collection today!!

The buoy is ready to hang with the jute rope we provide and it arrives in an attractive box with a clear lid – just add a bow and you are ready to give a handcrafted gift!

Polly & Dan have been working with glass since 2005 in their home studio in Dayton, Maine. While they both do traditional stained glass work, Polly is passionate about fusing glass.

What is fused glass?

The process begins with fusible stained glass, which is basically a special type of stained glass that can withstand the high temperatures of a kiln. The design elements are cut by hand from the various colors of glass, cleaned, and then assembled. The piece then goes into the kiln and the intense heat fuses the individual pieces of glass into one. If the fused piece is going to be shaped it goes into the kiln a second time at a lower temperature and is placed on a mold. As the temperature in the kiln slowly rises the glass slumps into (or over) the mold, taking on its shape.
