This wondrous glass paperweight was designed by Milon Townsend. Townsend is a self-taught artist, with over 30 years of experience in his field. His 10 year study of dancers in New York City had a profound influence on his style, leading to the clean lines and focus on motion that he has become known for. His background in classical music was instrumental in developing the preference for structure and form that permeates his work today. Milon Townsend uses torches to melt the glass that he works with, a technique called flameworking. Colors are twisted upon themselves and encased inside the glass; delicate patterns are etched into sheets of dichroic glass; elements are ground and polished in preparation for assembly; ultraviolet adhesives are employed to laminate pieces together. Townsend uses modern technological innovations, traditional Italian techniques such as murrine and filigrana, and methods that he himself has developed to create the sculptures that appear in his mind. This leopard frog dazzles the eye with its fiery mosaic of overlapping colors. This would make the perfect addition to any office or collection.
