3" CELESTIAL SERIES PAPERWEIGHT - MILKY WAY
The Milky Way is the galaxy that contains our Solar System. Its name is derived from its appearance as a dim glowing band arching across the night sky in which the naked eye cannot distinguish individual stars.
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.
