Blown Glass Seashore Globe Paperweight

Memories of a day spent at the beach are always at hand with this unique paperweight from our Washington State glass artisans. Gently turn the hand-blown glass globe to discover sand, shells and beach glass as well as a bit of ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. Each piece is truly unique. No two will ever be alike. 3.5 inches in diameter.

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.
