The world is at your fingertips with this solid glass paperweight. Detailed with an assortment of fused murrini, applied filigrana cane, inclusions of gold foils, and dichroic glass strips, this beautiful piece is from Josh Simpson’s “Inhabited Planet” series. The 3 paperweight has a flat, polished base and is signed and serialized on the bottom. Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of his pieces, each planet is unique. The basic theme of the inhabited planet series is that a new planet has been discovered with interesting features inviting exploration. There is a blue ocean swimming around green continents, forest filled mountain ranges and possibly inhabited cities. Interesting, possibly man made, structures require further exploration. There is a blue and white ribbon shaped spaceship on its way to investigate. This is a work of astonishing depth and intricate beauty. Josh Simpson has been making magical glass objects including paperweights for over 40 years. He has long had a fascination with space exploration and is married to Astronaut Cady Coleman. He is a graduate of Hamilton College and has his own glass studio in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts. He focuses on creating objects with a range of color, form, contrast, iridescence, tessellating patterns and complexity. 3″ in diameter by just over 2 3/4″ high. The base is ground flat. Signed on the base “Simpson 98″ and the number “11-129″. The number “11-129″ designates this as the 129th paperweight made in November, 1998. Excellent condition with no cracks, chips or scratches. Note on white glare. Please ignore the white areas – they are glare from the lights. This would be a beautiful addition to your signed art glass or paperweight collection.
