Hanging Floats & Ornaments

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 Hanging Floats are a bit of a variation from the original fishing floats.  Where that sealing plug of glass on fishing floats was usually rounded off to fit with the overall curve of the float, we stretch it out and curve it into a loop from which the Float can hang.  It's a great option if you'd rather have a Float in a window, for instance.  They're available from 3.5" (Ornaments) to 10" in diameter, with the 6" size being our most popular.

 

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

Ocean Beaches Glassblowing & Gallery is owned and operated by Bob and Vicki Meyer.  Bob is the primary artist of the gallery.
