Authenticity Certificate

Our Washington State artisans continually challenge the limits of molten glass with new ideas and designs, expertly creating each piece by hand. A marriage of science and art, this paperweight reveals the intricacies and mystery of the planet Neptune, a pale blue planet that lies beyond the reach of ordinary telescopes, nearly 3 billion miles from the Sun. As you travel through the galaxy with this dazzling dichroic glass planet, colors change as they either reflect or transmit light for a spectacular celestial show. The raw glass includes a pinch of ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, making each piece unique. 3'' diameter. The Pisces astrological sign is held by those who are born between February 20 and March 20.

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.
