AbstractA method of manufacturing taxidermic glass eyes and the like utilizes flat sheets of glass. This glass is printed with the markings and coloring for the eye image. The printing is accomplished by silk screening or other production methods. The eye is then shaped by heating the glass to a plastic state while being positioned over an opening. The heated glass slumps to form the eye shape. Excess material is trimmed away once the glass has cooled. A double wall, parabolic curve taxidermic eye is thereby provided.
