This paperweight was made by me from scratch. I start off by cleaning all my glass pieces then I glue them all together in no special order it's like building blocks. It is so kool because you have no idea what it's going to look like after the glass has fused together. It is truly amazing and very addicting.
I then put that piece into one of my two KILNS and put it to a full fuse and annealing and cool down period for durability and strength. That process takes about 3 1/2 hours.
Then I proceed to shape and clean up all rough edges with my glass grinder then all the pieces go back into the KILN for a fire polish which takes 3 1/2 hours.
Total time 7 hours
This paperweight measures: 3 1/4 wide x 1 1/2 Black Felted Bottom
I love having paperweights I have many at work. It is a great idea for a gift and everyone loves having paperweights. I know I do :)

I trace each design than with a steady hand give the first coat of paint and fuse - give another coat of paint and fire polish. It takes little time but I just love making them. I am totally a glass addict....
