Penguin candle

1797

This is a fat little penguin candle from Hawaii – although it is looking a little worse for wear due to the Aussie heat! It was the first penguin we saw in Hawaii, and we were somewhat stunned to find a penguin candle in Hawaii!!

Absolute original penguin

1790

This little penguin is an absolute original, and was made for us at our request by a glassblower in a market in Hawaii. We were on our way to dinner and saw a guy with a glass blowing stall and looked for a penguin amongst the collection of animals he had for sale. He didn’t have one and when we asked if he could make one for us, he accepted our challenge! We even got to pick the colours we wanted. It was very cool to see the birth of this penguin…
