Handmade furnace gathered paperweight by artist Jeff Mentuck

Here's the latest in this evolving series of wild paperweights. I love layering the glass and including in each layer wild spirals of cane and complex murrini, loads of dichroic swirls sparkle around and through the layers. An endless amount of things to find deep within this paperweight.

This paperweight is 3 1/4 inches in diameter and features a concave polished surface on the bottom that is signed and dated.


You are purchasing this Paperweight ARTIST DIRECT. It has been hand gathered and formed from the 2100 degree furnace by Artist Jeff Mentuck.

Artist's Statement

I have always had an interest in science, art, and fiery danger. I think that's why I was drawn to glassblowing. The glassblowing studio is like an applied physics laboratory that focus' on the forces of heat, gravity, and perserverance. Despite the dramatic flames and physical effort, the most important part of the process is DESIGN.

The focus of my work may change, but my design sense constantly strives to balance elements of form, color and composition in a way that remains both contemporary and classic. Each shape and design is refined over dozens of repititions and evolves to meet its potential.


Please buy with confidence as I offer a one week no questions asked return policy.
