A creepy pet for your collection of oddities. I hand hammer glowing hot steel on an antique anvil and make glass eyeballs that are attached after everything cools down. This is a sturdy piece of art that looks like it walked out of a computer animation. The bends and proportions in the legs are based on research I did into the kinematics of spiders, computer animation of spiders, and lots of arachnid photos.

I hand make these one of a kind items in my shop. The borosilicate glass is annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for maximum toughness. The metal work is finished with a traditional blacksmith mix of linseed oil and beeswax.
