EXQUISITE HAND CRAFTED AUSTRALIAN
STUDIO ART GLASS PAPERWEIGHT
EARLY EXAMPLE BY EILEEN GORDON!
Presenting an exceptional hand blown Australian Studio
art glass paperweight, expertly hand crafted and signed by
the renown Artist Eileen Gordan founder of Gordon Studio.
This exceptionally fine example features an exquisite encased flower
suspended within the sparkling crystal clear solid glass ovoid shaped form. One
cut-away polished side has been formed to the front of the paperweight, providing
the perfect window through which to view the exquisite flower within.
The encased flower has been expertly formed, with perfectly curved rich crimson
red petals, blending seamlessly with a deep purple to add a gorgeous depth
to each petal. Crisp white highlights radiate from the centre of the flower.
The stunning bloom bursts to life from a top a slender bright green stem.
The thick glass paperweight acts as a lens, spectacularly
magnifying and distorting the exquisite form and colour within.
