Virginia and Tony create these Hand Blown Artglass Snowman Paperweights using great care and devotion. They are are extremely collectible. They make these personally at their glassblowing studio in Halton Hills, On.
The Hand Blown Artglass Snowman Paperweights have a such a cute little Red Toque to keep them warm as they smile and look out at the scenery through their murrini eyes!
Glass making techniques are used in these pieces that were developed in Murano Italy in the year 1526.
The filigree and millifiore techniques used in these weights are the same as used in the past and is largely responsible for the fame enjoyed by Murano glass today. Every paperweight is unique and one of a kind. There may be similarities in color and pattern but no two of their handblown art glass paperweights are the same.
Some paperweights are hand signed with a diamond bit. Some have signature murrinis to identify the artist. All handblown glass made by Virginia and Tony is annealed in a digitally controlled annealer for strength and durability. The images you’ll see are of our actual art glass selection and the piece you will receive should you make a purchase. Thank you for supporting our fine Canadian Hand blown art glass.
