Paperweights are one of the most popular things to be collected in the world. Our glass paperweights are made with layers of clear molten glass, concentrated glass colors and dichroic glass. We create several different shapes, from oval eggs to flat domes to sculpted 3-D hearts. Our weights make a nice decoration on your desk to hold important paperwork in place. Give one to a friend or loved one as a gift to let them know you care. The nice thing about a paperweight, it will never change or fade or spoil. It’s a lovely heirloom that can be passed down from generation to generation. Our paperweights are all unique, one of a kind creations. These are hand crafted by us from molten furnace glass and concentrated glass colors. Each one is optically polished and signed by the artist.
Our dichroic glass paperweights are made with layers of clear molten glass and specialty sheet glass. First we are rolling into molten clear, then into an opaque colored glass powder. We are melting the layers together and picking up strips of dichroic glass on top of that. After we shape the dichroic layer into a round ball, we then gather a thin layer of clear on top of that. With an ice pic we poke into the surface, making indentations. Adding one last layer of clear, these dimples will trap air and create floating little bubbles inside. They look like little planets floating over a dichroic landscape. With a unique little atmosphere that we have created within each egg, these become very collectable. Most of our paperweights we make are an oval or egg shape, however round globes and flat dome shapes are also available. We also like to mention that we optically polished and sign each piece.
