The intricate seed head of the hedgerow plant Goat's Beard is held in time and sealed within a sphere of clear polyester resin. The resin contains a UV filter which prevents the plant from fading, preserving botanical specimens without destroying them as a traditional paperweight made of molten glass would.
The globe shape allows the specimen to be seen in all its beauty and intricacy from all angles, creating an object that is a pleasure to hold in the hand.
Each specimen is hand picked, then dried using a range of techniques designed to preserve their natural beauty. Next they are cast in clear resin and then individually turned and polished to a superb finish. Because of the nature of the product, each paperweight is an original work of art, with no two being identical. An ideal gift and collectible.
