Cube Glass Paperweight.

6.19.2011

Cube Glass Paperweight Two years ago, I made this paperweight in my first glassblowing class. I flattened the edges by letting the glass rest on the marver for a few seconds on each side. The inner blue color is twisted scrap color (pieces from other work which broke), and the red dots are frit on another layer of glass.

Even though they can be quite complex, abstract paperweights are popular form in beginner's classes.

In a paperweight, just a little bit of color will go pretty far. Different of color (or bubbles) can be layered onto a paperweight by dipping the piece into clear glass.
