Lighted Floats

Oregon Float® blown glass floats:

The Oregon Float®  brand of hand-blown glass floats is created exclusively at Ocean Beaches Glassblowing & Gallery in Seal Rock, OR, and includes each of the styles of blown glass floats described below.  The Oregon Float® label assures that you will be purchasing a locally hand-made piece of glass art, since it is quite common to find cheap blown glass items from overseas at even the most reputable of art galleries.


Our Lighted Floats are unique in that there is no "plug" of glass sealing the Float - in other words, it will not float for long if you drop it in the water!  Instead, the  opening created by breaking it off the pipe is left open to be ground smooth later, allowing a light bulb to be placed inside the Float for display.  Lighted from within, the colors of the Float provide a spectacular display you rarely get to see in blown glass!  And we have a couple of woodworkers that hand-craft Light Bases for us, specifically for these Floats.  

All floats presented here are hand-blown by glass artist Bob Meyer of Seal Rock, OR
