EYES - recommended supplier for artistic eyes.    About John Vidakovic - I have been doing my bird and creature sculptures for over thirty years. Recently I started making my own glass eyes for my sculptures as I needed ones with more color or whimsy and sizes that I could not find using taxidermy glass eyes. Soon after starting to use my eyes in my sculptures I started getting requests from jewelers and other artists for my glass eyes, the rest is history, and the response to my eye creations has been great.
