MAJESTIC - Borosilicate Paperweight




$80.00

This handmade one of a kind mini-paperweight/ornament was created n the flame by Elaine Forbes, AKA Weelainy.

MAGESTIC is an air trap paperweight made with borosilicate glass (PYREX), known for its strength, reactivity and clarity. The design is created by precision glass application and heat controlled implosion to give the incredible three dimensional internalised anenome/cactus with bubbles. It is initially created as a marble then the base is ground flat on a diamond lap wheel.  I have used a couple of reactive colors on this one to give the pretty pink,orange color that also has hints of blue and purple. The optical effect of the clear lens is really amazing.

Measures...

All my glass is carefully annealled in a digitally controlled kiln to relieve stress in the glass and ensure strength and durability.
