Clinton Smith: Tiger Salamander Paperweight
This paperweight features a tiger salamander on a green 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.
