Art Glass Fabrication at the House of Glass

Below is a brief step-by-step pictorial of one of our craftsman creating a paperweight from molten silica, through the craftsmans skillful work onto the product showroom.

The first bit of glass is dipped into the glass chips.
The glass is poured into another mold to add the flowers.
Another layer of glass is placed on the flower chips.
The bubbles are made with a special tool.
An ice pick is used to create the stems of the flowers.
The paperweight is blocked to take on its initial shape.
The paperweight is gradually cut off of the pontil.
The bottom of the paperweight is heated before it is stamped.
The paperweight is stamped with date & name.

We have created a seven minute video of the paperweight creation and kiln process.
