3" CELESTIAL SERIES PAPERWEIGHT - METEOR SHOWER
A blaze of fire lights the night sky when the trail of dust thrown off by an asteroid or comet pummels into the earth’s atmosphere. Glass Eye Studio artists have depicted this cosmic spectacle with flashes of dichroic glass showering a desert mountain at nightfall.
These dreamy paperweights are even more mystifying in person. They measure 3" in diameter, and are handmade in Seattle, Washington. Each weight is inspired by one of Glass Eye Studio's designer's interpretation of the scientific world, and takes a team of two or three talented artists to create. These carefully formed designs use a wide spectrum of materials: specialty colors, dichroic glass, glow-in-the-dark material, and even precious metals. Since 1995, these pieces of art have been admired and collected.
As each piece is uniquely crafted and individually handmade, no two are alike. The photos shown are a representation of what you will receive; colors and design may slightly vary. All Glass Eye Studio pieces also contain volcanic ash from the Mount St. Helen's eruption in 1980.
