To create this paperweight, our master glass artisans form the image of an orange shooting star rocketing through the black of space 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. Master glass blowers craft this celestial shooting star paperweight from molten glass heated to over 2000° F. After the features are formed, they are then surrounded by clear and matte molten glass, shaped into a rounded form and polished to a smooth finish. Ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens serves as the secret ingredient. Each shooting star glass paperweight measures approximately 3 inches 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.
