This is a collector's dream! THIRTY Complex Canes separated by latticino twists on a translucent blue ground.
This is huge; 4 inches in diameter. There is a "PMcD" cane on bottom.
I love paperweights. They are very addictive to both the child and adult in me. Like a child, I love to hold them and marvel at the smooth surface and shiny beautiful colors. The adult marvels at the artistry it takes to create a weight such as this, and how privileged we are to have this creation enrich our life.
The process of making the canes and having the glass pulled precisely when the glass is heated for pliability is difficult, to say the least. This is quite an expert and a complex process, dependent on many factors. Peter McDougall is a sought after artist, very popular in Europe and America. This piece is unblemished, and a very unique presentation.
