Both antlers on this sculpture by Dr. Seuss (Ted Geisel) had been damaged. Both tips were broken off and each antler had been cracked and chipped at various points.

This nearly 3' tall hot glass sculpture was severely damaged and needed to be repaired. Justin carefully joined dozens of glass pieces together to return the sculpture to its original shape. He then created a delicate bronze drape that flows around the figure to conceal the repair.
