Hand Blown Glass Collectible Paperweights

Seattle's prominence as a glass art center began in 1971, when glass artist Dale Chihuly co-founded the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington. Today, Seattle is the epicenter of glass blowing in the United States, and even has more glass shops than the famed island of Murano, Italy.

The process of glass blowing involves inflating molten glass into a bubble with the

 aid of a blowpipe as a key part of the piece's creation. Three furnaces are used, and all of the work is done in a 'hot shop' - most often having the blown glass pieces created by a team of artisans.

These paperweights are a celebration of this technique for which our area is known, and are among our most collectible gifts. Shown here is the Tree of Life from the Environmental Series.
