Somerset paperweight in green and blue. A spin-off from our popular Somerset range of baubles, and inspired by the colours and landscape of the Somerset levels.
This paperweight is made from 24% lead glass, which we melt in our furnace at 1160 degrees. The glass is coated with 3 different coloured glass powders while hot. The parison is then reheated to fuse before we add the stringers and frits to give the piece its unique design. The final piece is then sandblasted when cold to give it a matte finish.
