'Alfie Alpaca from Curraghduff Farm' - Fused Glass Freestanding Alpaca
The West of Ireland is known for its sheep - there are lots of them. There are, however, alpacas too! And really cute ones.
The Connemara Blue team took a trip to the stunning Curraghduff Farm, Oughterard (County Galway), and took part in one of their fabulous 'Alpaca Experience Walks'. We fell in love with the alpacas immediately. Each one of them had their own character and they had no problem showing us who was in charge! The location is stunning, and the welcome from Ruth and Stuart, their chickens and their three gorgeous dogs (Harry, Bill and Molly) was amazing.
We wanted to immortalise our experience through the medium of glass. And here is our very first alpaca figure in white glass and frit.
We are sure you'll agree that this cheeky little character makes for a fun gift idea or an ideal memento of a visit to the West of Ireland.
