Black Glass Paperweight ‘Firefly’ by Remigijus Kriukas
This black glass paperweight is stunning steel coloured cubes that stand up on one corner. Being stood on its edge really makes the piece and gives a clear view in to the central ‘firefly’ design.
It’s particular style makes an excellent gift for him with its steel finish and urban good looks.
Whether sat on a study desk or gleaming from a bookshelf, this item will enchant and bewitch the eye and continues to delight as you get closer still.
To make a piece like this involves a secret process only known to the glass artist himself. We have never seen anything like this before and we are expecting them to be exceptionally popular.
The sensational colouration is set off perfectly by the bubbles and the cuboid casing.
This object tricks you with its magnification. From one side you see the dainty image and from another the whole view is engorged with with the metallic hues of the central bubble.
Each black glass paperweight is made up by painstakingly blowing layer after layer. First with a central metallic coloured core. Then enshrined in a perfectly even distribution of bubbles. This, in turn, is enveloped in another layer of brilliant clear crystal glass before the final ‘steel’ casing is added.
Once complete, the glass is polished to an amazing shine and is then personally signed by the artist.
