Blue Cone Paperweight by Yataka Mizuno

A cone shaped paperweight by Yataka Mizuno with a similar alien jelly fish design in a stunning blue. Better known for his partnership with his wife Setsuko Ogishi who is the principal glass artist and Yataka assisting her in the studio however there is the occasion when he is able to create the odd piece of glass.  His work is exceedingly rare plus he signed this piece for me with his own name and not the studio’s jokingly saying that this piece will be worth a fortune in the future.

Black Lizard on Red Rock by Sean O’Donoghue

What a stunning paper weight crafted by the well known artist from Hot Stuff Glass Blowing Studio and Gallery Sean O’Donoghue. This piece is of a black lizard lazing on a red rock created by flashing a black glass over the red and then masking up the lizard on the piece and then sand blasting the glass to remove the black to the red underneath. Next the masking is removed to reveal the lizard shape and a further detail is added by hand etching using varying diamond tips giving the complete picture.
