Clown Frog with Purple Flowers

Art Glass Paperweight

Created by Clinton Smith
Rated 3 based on 1 customer reviews
This large paperweight features a clown frog that is a giraffe morph, which is native to Costa Rica. A cluster of purple flowers, along a tiny branch and a stone, sit on top mossy ground. Signature cane is embedded in the paperweight, and each piece is signed and dated.

The flora and fauna are made by the process of lampworking, which involves the use of a torch to melt colored rods of glass so they may be worked into the shapes and designs desired. After the elements are made, they are assembled together in a composition to reflect the environment Smith wants to create. Next, glass crystal encases the assembled design in a kiln. The crystal mass, including the assembled design inside, are formed into a final spherical shape. The bottom is ground down to a polish, and the paperweight is signed. Each piece is unique; slight variations may occur from piece to piece.
