Glass Eye Studio
Glass Eye Studio was founded on the belief that talented glass artists should have a place to work where their skills and creativity are fully appreciated. Glass Eye Studio is collected by people all over the world. Each piece they produce contains ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.
The 'Volcano' card states:
“A Sleeping Giant can only rest for so long. And when it awakes, it wakes with a fury that can be fatal to any living thing nearby. Grouchy grumbles and cranky tremors signal the giant's awakening. It can bare the built up pressure no longer and coughs forth a grand cloud of rock and ash, darkening the skies for miles around. Glowing magma oozes from the opening, sending burning red rivers of lava down its sides. Glass Eye artists captured and suspended the cataclysm for your safe viewing and reflection.”
