These three paperweights made in Scotland by John Deacons are superb example of the art. Created using millefiori canes that are cut into slices then arranged in intricate patterns set on a colour ground and encased in clear glass.
This paperweight is called “Flower In The Rain” created by John Deacons of Scotland. In this case it is a yellow flower that was created in the centre of clear glass on a blue ground. Then a series of controlled bubbles were added to create the rain effect before the final layer of clear glass was applied trapping the air within.
