Antique Ephemera Paperweight

Special Price $29.00 Regular Price $38.00
Nested on a small island outside of Seattle, our artisan uses botanical etchings, handwritten letters from the late 1800s and 1900s, and bits of antique ephemera to handcraft this original design. She then reproduces her original design which is hand-sealed beneath 4'' oval glass to create breathtaking imagery for desk or tabletop display. Bottom lined with black felt.

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.
