The cartoonish glass animals Catherine Labonté creates are always a technical challenge, but she hopes the objects will evoke laughter and wonder in the viewer.

Adopt a Glass Pet Day is going virtual this year! Join us as Catherine Labonté, the designer and creator of our very own Pierre Penguin, debuts a brand new animal creation live from her hot shop in Canada. 

Known for her curiously cute and thoroughly whimsical glass animal creations, Labonte says of her work: "I use glass because of the simple lines, the brightness, its translucent and colorful nature as well as for the technical challenges. With it I hope to create objects that evoke laughter and wonder in order to lighten the heart."

Help us pick Cat's newest creation!

Send your ideas and tune in on October 21 to find out what the new animal is!
