Art Glass Paperweights

The handblown Art Glass Paperweights Virginia and Tony create are extremely collectible and are made with great care and devotion. All are made personally by Virginia Wilson Toccalino and Tony Toccalino at their glassblowing studio using Venetian influenced glass making techniques, developed in Murano Italy in the year 1526, Working at their glassblowing studio in Halton Hills, On in the Greater Toronto Area the filigree and millifiori techniques used in these weights are the same techniques used in the past and largely responsible for the fame enjoyed by Murano glass today. Every paperweight is unique and one of a kind unless identified as a limited edition run. There may be some similar in color and pattern but no two of their handblown art glass paperweights are the same. Some of the paperweights are hand signed with a diamond bit, some have signature murrinis to identify the artist. We also have handblown art glass eggs that have no flat spot.. All handblown glass made by Virginia and Tony is annealed in a digitally controlled annealer for strength and durability. pa*per*weight (n). A small, heavy, often decorative object that is placed on loose papers to hold them down, also known as collectible, contemporary objects of beauty
