2011-06 Ingrid's Corning Glass Hippo

On board the Solsitce is a Corning Glass blowing show.  On each cruise the
kids program (Fun Factory) has each kid draw a design to make into a peice
of glass art.  One kids design is chosen on each cruise, and on our cruise it
was Ingrid's hippo named "Sparkles".   After it is completed it has to slow cool
for 24 hours and then Ingrid got to take Sparkles home (it was a 4,500 mile hand
carried journey)!  It is truly amazing that they artisans were able to replicate the
color, the shape, and even the expression that she drew on Sparkles.
