Art Glass Paperweight
Created by Benjamin Silver
Strikingly brilliant colors, blooming abstractly into form, and peacefully floating in the empty space. These walls in which it's held were built with precise cutting and grinding of the glass. Originally the form was made spherical, in a hot molten state, the only way to achieve this colorful explosion. Once cooled, labor intensity, and hand eye precision transform the glass. What's left is a visual wonder of optical effects. A myriad of colors bouncing within the cubes angles and slopes.
