This small unique paperweight is a hand blown 24KT Gold fumed implosion and it was hand crafted in the flame on a major/ minor torch using pyrex and borosilicate glass. Each of these are as different as night and day, which makes it a great one of a kind gift item. The implosion of 24KT inside the paperweight was achieved by melting a small piece of 24KT gold in a high oxidized flame and collecting the evaporated gold onto the outside of a blown out bubble of glass. Then symmetrical dots are lamp worked all around the bubble on top of the layer of fumed gold. You proceed by burning in those dots of glass till it is evenly melted into the the tube. Then you blow a bubble again at the end of the tube and implode the dots into the glass creating a blooming effecting on the inside. The size is 50mm tall and about 25 mm thick. If you or a friend is a glass or paperweight enthusiast this would make a great piece for any collection. It is signed and dated on the bottom with a titanium pen.
