Mystery Object – Penny Licks

Glass is malleable and can be fashioned and shaped into objects that are useful and ergonomic to suit a contemporary use, when that use is no longer needed, the object becomes obsolete, forgotten, and with time recognition diminishes leaving us with ‘mystery objects’, like these ‘Penny Licks”.
