Mika the LadyBug is a lovely sight to behold. Her striking red and black markings are a welcome symbol of luck and miracles. Her red hue also warns hungry birds that she doesn’t have a pleasant taste. Mika is a treasured resident of orchards. She helps farmers maintain healthy crops by eating up lots of yummy aphids. Mika was born on November 2, 2011. Each tiny sculpture comes in a clear plastic case with a magnifying glass cap. Sculpture is very small, approximately 3/4 inch.
Looking Glass sculptures are hand crafted using glass rods. They are heated and melted by a gas-powered torch. The torch worker has a high degree of control over how soft the glass becomes, as a result they're able to create pieces with immaculate detail and complexity.
