Red and Yellow Roses Bouquet Paperweight
Art Glass Paperweight(ID: A58649)
Created by Shawn Messenger
This paperweight is solid glass that is hand formed using a tool called a block. Glass powders and chips are used to create the background. The flowers are glass murrini that are created by the artist. Each murrini is made from the cross section of a glass cane that has layers of color with an interior shape of a flower. The murrini pieces are then put into floral compositions, sometimes known as millefiori, then picked up hot onto the glass background. After the murrini have been fused to the surface a layer of clear is added and the piece is blown into the final shape. The floral compositions shown will vary slightly due to the handmade nature of the murrinis.
