I was on a mission to find a handmade teal or turquoise glass elephant.
Along the way, I got to see artisans at work making all kinds of interesting pieces from glass.
I never did find that teal elephant, but I found something better.
I found David at Mdina Glass near the Ta’ Qali Crafts Village.
I watched him make a few intricate glass pieces, marveling at his skill, and then asked if he could make an elephant.
Yes, he could make one for me if I returned at 12:30pm the next day.
So, back on the bus the next day, and he made these interlocking glass elephants with teal ears and tails from nothing but tubes of glass.
