Estate - Unique Art Glass Encased Paperweight
I am a professional organizer selling this on behalf of a client
I will be listing many beautiful estate items. The former owner had a great appreciation for fine things. All look better in person than the photos depict.
Here's what I know: Up for sale is a beautiful encased mini paperweight by artist Cathy Richardson. Piece is approx. 2.25" in diameter. It is signed with the artists name & MT-049 & dated 2012.
Artists description: "These pieces are made through a process called "vacuum encasement". There are only a small number of artists using this particular technique because it requires special equipment and a wide variety of techniques combined just right in order to produce a successful result. Each of the elements of the design must be sculpted individually using lampworking techniques. The parts are assembled together into a small sculpture, heated in a kiln, and then encased in clear optical glass using a special vacuum chamber. Once encased in crystal I use the tools of a glassblower to shape it into a finished piece. Each of these pieces can represent dozens of hours of work between the different steps in order to bring the design together into a finished piece.Does not include the original certificate." Similar pieces of this size sell in galleries for $325. I am offering priority shipping to save you $$$. From a non smoking home.
