Clinton Smith: Mouse with Balloon Paperweight
This paperweight features a fun cartoon mouse with a balloon against a bright blue sky with clouds.
Inspired by nature, Clinton Smith has been creating art in the forms of paperweights, blown glass, sculptural glass, and lampworked glass for the last 16 years. As a self-taught lampworker, he had experimented with various lampworking techniques. He realized that he could take fragile lampworked elements and encase them in glass to create a paperweight.
