My inspiration: Paperweights are usually "flat" and you look down on the design. I wanted to create a paperweight that was also a sculpture.
Blue Dragonflies among the Lilypads in a glass sculpture that also functions as a stand-up paperweight. Hold down your papers while displaying art that can be seen or display on its own.
Artistic process: Casting glass in layers to create a design with depth and dimension with inclusions of casted dragonfly, lilypads and lilies. The embedded dragonfly's wings were very faint as they are translucent with shimmering bits of color so I added a new blue dragonfly above it -- thought that matched natural observations of 2 dragonflies.... so I added one lily flower on top for extra dimension too.
The bottom is ground to ensure a flat surface.
Dimensions (approximate): 4" tall x 5" wide x 1.5"deep
