Tory the Tortoise loves a dry, desert climate with a lot of sunshine. She has a thick shell which she can tuck her head and legs into for protection. Tory has the potential to grow quite old. Her relatives have lived to be over 200 years old! Tory is an herbivore and feeds mainly on grass, flowers, and some fruits. Her birthday is August 19, 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.
