Have You Seen Our Anemone Wall Mural?

Because if you haven’t, we invite you to immerse yourself in our anemone-inspired glass wall mural. Delicate blown glass in deep sea hues mimics the vibrant colors and delicate textures of these magical sea creatures: not to mention, brings in all the calmness and serenity of underwater landscape into your room!

Anemones are to the ocean floor what tulips are to us air breathers! Take a look from above and they look like a garden full of flowers in bloom.

And We Are Fascinated By Them

One of the most remarkable features of anemones is their ability to capture and immobilize prey using their specialized tentacles, which are equipped with stinging cells called nematocysts. When an unsuspecting fish or crustacean brushes against an anemone's tentacles, the nematocysts are triggered, releasing toxins that paralyze the prey and allow the anemone to consume it at its leisure. And yet, the clownfish escapes it all!

There are over 1,000 known species of anemones, ranging in size from just a few centimeters to over a meter in diameter and can be found in a wide variety of marine environments, from shallow tidal pools to the darkest depths of the ocean.

And The Giant Green Anemone Chose Us

Since the time we witnessed the giant green anemones on the Rocky shores, we have been meaning to pay a tribute to its beautiful form in glass. Known for their bright green – almost neon- appearance, these look utterly fascinating with their sunflower like tentacles. Truly though, the world will be divided in two halves- one that has seen the magnificient under water landscape and the others who haven’t. Words can never quite describe.

Glassforests Take On Anemone!

We took 3 different types of colors on blown glass- milky white, green and swirls of green and white to create that ‘trippy’ effect that anemones often have and combined blown glass pieces in different sizes. We also used a lot of brass on these because we truly wanted to add a bit of sun-rays like glint.

For the sea floras and fans we used fluted colored glass and held it in place with brass.

We also added our version of sea sponge and barnacles on this one- made of swirly textured glass and hollow bubble glass. On a few you could find the most heavenly pastel, ‘fruit-loop’y glass textures and that is purely us taking some liberty! Visit glass-forest.com
