Swirls of color and clever faceting turn an ordinary paperweight into an owl!
Design Inspiration: Birds and animals.
Crafting Method: Chunks of colour are melted into clear glass and twisted and swirled around to create the owls body. A starburst pattern is melted into the next layer of glass and an indent created so that air is trapped when the final layer of glass is taken from the furnace. When cool, two facets are cut on the top that gives the illusion that there are two bubbles inside and not just one. The beak is then cut and polished and the owl is created!
