In their Seattle studio, master glass blowers craft our Leo/Sun glass paperweight from molten glass heated to over 2000°F inside a fiery furnace. Ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens serves as the secret ingredient in their proprietary glass formula. Unique details, representative of the Sun, are formed by rolling the heated glass in colored glass powders, shaping with hand tools and adding gold leaf and dichroic glass pieces to the surface for an iridescent effect. After the features are formed, they are then surrounded by clear molten glass, shaped into its rounded form and polished to a smooth finish. This glass paperweight is masterfully handcrafted, uno alla volta, from the hearts and hands of artisans. No two are exactly alike. Each paperweight measures approx. 3 in. diameter.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
