Somewhere...

Keep this glass rainbow on your desk as a reminder to keep seeking your personal pot of gold (proverbial or otherwise). Jes Sutton crafts each one from seven sections of carefully hand cut and assembled art glass, which undergo a two-day process of fusing, shaping, and strengthening. Finally, she sands the bottom of each rainbow for stable, enduring beauty. With the finishing touch of the artist's signature on the inside, it makes an inspiring gift for birthdays, graduations, or anyone who could use a pop of color in their work space. Handmade in Geneva, New York.

Meet Jes and see some gloriously colorful photos of her glass-making magic, on our blog.

“When I'm in my studio, I'm surrounded by a (literal) rainbow of colors that seem to dance in the light. It's such a beautiful and joyful experience that I'm never at a loss for inspiration.”

Jes Sutton draws inspiration from the amazing medium of glass itself: "I love the way glass feels, how it comes to life in the light, how subtle changes in heat and time can produce drastically different effects, and most importantly, how its potential is only limited by my imagination."

Really cute rainbow, however I was disappointed to see multiple bubbles in it. I understand that they could be part of the glass making process, but they are not represented in the image. Also, the artist's initials are etched into the piece and just look like scratches. It doesn't tell me who the artist is, just looks like scratches in my glass rainbow. An enclosed card describing the actual artist would have been better.

Very cute and unique piece, though.

      I received this piece for my birthday; it had been on my wishlist for awhile. It's gorgeous and unique. I've received several compliments from my coworkers as it's hard to miss it when on the desk, holding down some papers. I love it and highly recommend it!

              This piece can function as a paperweight, but mostly it was purchased for its beautiful design. It really brightens up an otherwise gray-tone modern office environment.

                          This is a sweet rainbow; makes me happy. My only issue is that I definitely would not categorize this piece as a "paperweight" -- yet it popped up as such when I entered the keyword: paperweight.
