glaseyartisan2Astrology holds that each sign of the zodiac is aligned with a planet or star that influences the personality of each person born under that sign. Our Washington State glass artisans masterfully handcraft these paperweights representing the astrological
signs’ ruling counterpart.

In their Seattle studio, master glass blowers craft our celestial paperweights from molten glass heated to over 2000* F inside a fiery furnace. Ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens serves as the secret ingredient. Unique details, representative of each planet, are formed by rolling the heated glass in colored glass powders, shaping with hand tools and adding gold leaf and dichroic glass pieces to the surface for an iridescent effect. After the features are formed, they are then surrounded by clear molten glass, shaped into its rounded form and polished to a smooth finish.
