Hi
I can tell you who made this weight - it was Pardip Sodera who used to call himself Obsidian Glass. I knew him quite well until he moved down to the Swindon area

thank you!  That's interesting, I wonder if he is still in business? It is a really nicely made weight, well carved.

Hi Lynne

Pardeep Sodera used to work in Hungerford near Newbury around 2000.

I don't know where he is now or if he is still making these weights, but
I have one dated 2004.

Incidently, they are not carved as you say, but sandblasted. A resist such
as PVA glue is painted onto the iridised blank in the shape of the design (dragonfly)

Then when the resist is dry the weight is sandblasted - this removes about
1/2 mm of glass from everywhere other than the area covered in the resist.

The resist is then cleaned off leaving the iridised design in relief

Best regards

Derek

Hi John

Yes he had loads of different designs - I have a frog and a butterfly weight by him. He changed the colour of the iridescence to suit the subject. The frog is green !

Best regards
