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."

I love rainbows. Rainbows rainbow rainbows! Rainbows are my favorite color. And yet, it is so oddly difficult to find really beautiful rainbow art. I think this might be the first tangible rainbow that got my by the heart. It's so pretty, and catches light really well. I meant to put it in one of my windows so the light through the bands of color would best cheer up the room. Just before it arrived the management of my apartment complex sent round a notice that we couldn't put things in our windows. It's a rule not strictly enforced, but I'm not sure what my odds are they (or one of my neighbors) wouldn't suddenly become extremely letter-of-the-law, or worse, if they saw a rainbow. It currently lives on a bookshelf, being Bifrost to my favorite nerd figures.

This was purchased to give to my work friend to brighten up a drab grey office. The colors are clear and bright, and I loved the little bubbles that showed from the craftsmanship. It also lighter than I expected, wouldn't recommend as a sturdy paperweight, but it's so beautiful- especially when the light shines through it and you get rainbows on the desk!

I was not so impressed

Based on the photos and description, I imagined it would be more substantial. Especially since it was described as a glass paperweight, I thought it would have a heavier weight. It seemed dinky and it was pricey for what it was.

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. #sweepstakes
