Polar Bear Glass Paperweight
My Representation in Glass, of the noble giant of the Arctic. I really try to showcase the spirit of the Polar Bear with my work. All white, with speckled ‘fur’ and torch-worked eyes, ears, and nose. Each has an individual expression.
Offered in both Adult and “Cub” sizes:
Polar Bear Adult: 4 inches tall, and 4-5 inches nose to tail
Polar Cub: 3 inches tall/long
You can find glass craftsman, Chris Sherwin, in his Bellows Falls, Vermont studio on any given day, talking over his shoulder as he rolls molten glass on the end of his blowpipe. A glassblower for 17 years, Sherwin is best known for his torch work design, or “Painting with Glass”. Using hand-pulled canes of glass, Sherwin uses a specialized torch to melt the tip of each cane and applies the bit of molten glass to his pieces, “one flower petal at a time”, creating works of art and showcasing Nature’s beauty. Sherwin incorporates torchwork design into most of his glass creations, including vases, floral paperweights and hand-sculpted animals. Sherwin is most inspired by the majesty of nature, his family, and his repeat customers, who often inspire him to new designs.
