show and tell - paperweight sculpture Blowzone
« on: June 08, 2011, 11:13:57 PM »
I just had to share this, I bought it last weekend and think it is incredibly beautiful.  Blowzone 1998 - 20p.  Just need one with a reptile on now.....actually scrub that, I'll go straight for  a vase  ;D

thanks  :)

I'm curious as to how they managed the pattern to be honest.  But the optical effect of looking through the 'cut lens' is amazing - the pattern is hugely enlarged and appears in the negative.

I know Rosie  :)  I couldn't believe my luck.  Especially since it was about to pour down with rain.  I managed a couple of lovely pieces last week, this one and a Loetz vase that I have been coveting for a while :-X  But I had to sell one of my very old pieces to pay for that one  :cry:  still, I rather like swapping my collection for new bits - it's getting to be a habit.  I need to keep some of my pieces really, but I get bored very easily and I'm always looking for ever rarer, something different.
