This long-legged creature wanders through the mountains, looking for rocks and clay, which it eats,” writes Campbell Glass, glass art designer, of his new creation, “Glumbo the Rock Eater.”
The description begged to be blown into a museum-quality glass sculpture. At least that is what the Museum of Glass Hot Shop Team thought. Campbell was 12 when he submitted “Glumbo” to the team.
“Glumbo,” along with “Recycle Robot,” “Pip,” “Mixed Up Flamy!” and “Shark Attack,” is among the 52 unconventional glass sculptures in an extraordinary exhibit that has visitors flocking to the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Wash.
