Ed Kachurik: Round Paperweight With Blue Veils


This beautiful and colorful piece is by Ed Kachurik, a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Kachurik is an independent glass artist who experiments with precious metals and chemicals to create his own colors, which are unique to his line today. He uses a technique of coloring the hot glass surface, which is called veiling. A veil is a metallic coating that is applied to the hot glass, and then covered with clear glass, thus trapping the color inside the sculpture.

  • Each piece is handmade, so no two are exactly alike in size, shape, or color
  • Signed and dated by Kachurik
