Our Washington State artisans continually challenge the limits of molten glass with new ideas and designs, expertly creating each piece by hand. Each whirlpool galaxy paperweight contains dichroic glass for an iridescent and hypnotic effect. Ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens serves as the secret ingredient in the proprietary glass formula. 3'' 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.
