“Art Experience” for up to six people an hour where you select the colors, inside design, use of murrini and sit with the artist in a hot shop. After a demonstration, you will hold the punte (pipe), apply the frit (color), warm the weight several times, cut the hot glass and twist it around with artisan tools. You can select one to five colors for your paperweight and once the final layer of hot glass is applied, you will use the cherry blocks to shape the weight.
Finally, the paperweight is cut off the punte and the bottom is fire-polished. Since your art is very hot, it needs to anneal overnight. You can sign and date your very own Santa Fe paperweight or have us ship to you for an additional charge.
