Giant Tree Orb
Giant Tree Orb. The inspiration for this tree paperweight comes from Lynden’s love of the magnificent giants of the New Zealand forest. “Trees are one of the solutions to climate change so I love to use them in my art.”
An original piece of glass art. Excellently suited as a paperweight, collector’s item or interior design accent. Handcrafted by award-winning glass artist Lynden Over in his Lava Glass Studio in Taupo, New Zealand. Signed and dated by the artist. Comes with a certificate of authenticity.
H 230 mm x W 170 mm x D 170 mm
This paperweight was built up in layers starting from the hillock with its flowers on which the trees and mushrooms stand, up through the branches to the canopy. Finally, the whole sculpture was encased in a thick layer of clear glass. The sculpture was worked at between 800 and 1000 degrees Celsius on the end of a steel rod. Due to its size the tree weight was then cooled slowly in a kiln for eight weeks.
