Handmade by me in an open flame my 'paperlight' paperweights are functional collector's pieces.
This particular design is an extension of my paperweights being set in a beautiful turned wood burr by Roni Roberts 'Artistic Woodcrafts' and with the addition of a lampworked glass heron sat waiting to catch his fishy supper from the glassy paperweight pond below.
The paperweight features three 'goldfish' swimming above a half sandy, half rocky base. Lashings of clear glass generate the watery effect and amplify the details within.
The piece stands 11.5cm tall from base to the top of the heron's head and 10cm in diameter.
