Large Spiral Galaxy 3.5″ Paperweight by Schuster Glass Studio

This paperweight features swirls of blues, greens, and white dichroic glass and a black opaque background to form an out of this world galaxy within the weight. At 3.5″ in diameter this is the largest weight of the series.

The glass which we include in our Dichroic series paperweights has been coated with up to 50 micro-thin layers of exotic metals such as titanium and zirconium. These metals are applied during an advanced manufacturing process involving high energy, intense heat, and near total vacuum. The result is an optical effect in which reflected light produces various crisp and vibrant colors when viewed from different angles. This combined with the contrasting black background and stratigically placed bubbles produces an elegant and mysterious artistic effect.
