* Tangerine "Obliteride" Duck

SKU
3-06332

Ryan Blythe first started making duckies in 2002. They were a simplified version of full-sized mallards he made in the factories of Murano, Italy. Initially, they were transparent; Blythe’s mother still has the first one. It didn’t take long for the first “classic yellow” ducky to appear, as well as a rainbow of others.

This vibrant ducky's measures approximately 6"x 4"x 4"

Cancer Fighting Duckies

In 2012, Blythe’s mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  Motivated by her battle, which has largely been successful, Blythe brainstormed with a friend from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center about how the studio could contribute to cancer research.  In, 2013, the Teal “Leslie” Ducky was born!  Matching the teal ribbon and named after his mother, a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of each Ducky will go to ovarian cancer research.

As it turned out, the “Leslie” Ducky was only the beginning of a partnership between Rainier Glass Studio and Fred Hutch.  The Tangerine Ducky has been taken on by Obliteride, s a bicycling event to drive community awareness and support for cancer research.

Rainier Glass Studio was moved by the mission of Project Violet and the story of the little girl that inspired the namesake.  Our Violet Ducky supports their research developing a new class of anti-cancer compounds derived from nature that will attack cancer cells while leaving healthy cells untouched.

About The Maker

About Blythe Duckies

(Seattle, Washington)

Ryan Blythe first started making duckies in 2002. They were a simplified version of full-sized mallards he made in the factories of Murano, Italy. Initially, they were transparent; it didn't take long for the first “classic yellow” Ducky to appear, and then limited runs of pink Duckies.

Blythe Duckies are now created in every color of the rainbow and in combinations like the Seattle Mix and Dalmatian.

In 2012, Blythe’s mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Motivated by her battle, which has largely been successful, Blythe brainstormed with a friend from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center about how the studio could contribute to cancer research. In 2013, the Teal “Leslie” Ducky was born! Matching the teal ribbon and named after his mother, a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of each Ducky will go to ovarian cancer research.
