2014 Holiday Glass Paperweight

Special Price $69.99 Regular Price $148.00
Our Washington State glass artisans masterfully created this special 2014 holiday paperweight exclusively for Uno Alla Volta. Our blown glass paperweight features dramatic spirals of clear and colored glass that mimic the glow of a warm winter fire. Each piece contains ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens and will arrive in an elegant velvet gift box. This glass paperweight is handcrafted, one at a time, from the hearts and hands of artisans; no two are exactly alike. Paperweight measures 3in. diameter and inscribed ''2014 Uno Alla Volta''.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
