For $14, today’s side deal gets you $30 worth of handcrafted glass LDS temple sculptures or glass-repair services at Temples Around the World. Groupon holders can schedule a time to pick up their temples or have them delivered (shipping costs are not included with the Groupon, but shipping is free for orders of more than $35).
Temples Around the World’s owner/artist Marge Rosebrook creates striking, elegant glass versions of LDS temples using drops and swoops of sparklingly clear glass. These highly artistic yet distinctly recognizable temples are available in a variety of styles and sizes. Opt for a small 2” temple ($27) to top a wedding cake, or add a small 3” walnut base ($3.75) to make it accessorize a work desk or coffee table. You can also redeem your Groupon for professional glass repair, which will come in handy after an opera-singing guest inadvertently cracks all the vases in your house.
Temples Around the World
Artist Marge Rosebrook creates spun-glass replicas of Latter-day Saints temples from around the globe, channeling 30 years of glass-working experience to perfect the crystalline sculptures. Drops and swoops of glass become recognizable versions of each temple, whether the originals are located in Albuquerque or in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The angel Moroni atop each can be coated in 18-karat gold upon request, and the various sculptures come in four sizes, including small temples that make excellent Christmas ornaments or wedding-cake toppers. Glass domes can encapsulate the temple and connect to walnut or mirrored bases to protect temples from dust and keep them sparkling.
