My inspiration: Paperweights are usually "flat" and you look down on the design. I wanted to create a paperweight that was also a sculpture.
Abstract open yellow and red Murrini 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 murrini. Glass cane with floral design is cut into short murrini and embedded in the kilncasting for the paperweight.
The bottom is ground to ensure a flat surface.
Dimensions (approximate): 4" tall x 5" wide x 1.5"deep
