Clinton Smith: Poison Dart Frog Paperweight
This paperweight features a poison dart frog on a rain forest floor.
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.
