The Handblown Filigrana Stardust Glass Angels Virginia and Tony create are extremely collectible. Virginia Wilson Toccalino and Tony Toccalino make them with great care and devotion at their glassblowing studio in Halton Hills, On.
Every Angel is unique and one of a kind. Panels of Stardust glass alternating with colored glass canes swirling gently around their bodies adorn these angels. This adds a lovely striping and sparkle across their bodies. Their little wings are open and ready to fly away to their new home.
Dichroic objects may display multiple colours when viewed from different angles. Virginia fires her glass in a kiln at high temperatures a number of times to achieve the finished result. The colour of each piece can be quite unpredictable.
Dichroic glass possesses an effect that is witnessed in nature on insect wings, peacock and hummingbird feathers. When the dichroic glass is fired in the kiln, its reflective qualities are enhanced to make it sparkle and shine an increased amount.
These Handblown Filigrana Stardust Glass Angels are symbols for faith, devotion, hope, trust, innocence, purity, strength and love. These things are necessary to be a good person. Angels have been protectors and messengers throughout history. Angels provide comfort, inspire faith and promote the search for higher wisdom and understanding.
An Angelic gift acts as an angelic presence in someone’s life. Other symbolisms provide comfort and promotes divine understanding.
