Need for Sea
For an emergency island escape, do not break the glass. Just gaze at this stunning desktop sculpture, and let your mind take you there. Michael Hudson's tropical inspired paperweight looks as if a palm leaf was twirled and suspended beneath crystal clear water. He creates the vibrant green "leaves" by firing bits of colorful soda-lime glass that twist and fold to achieve a three-dimensional effect. It's a beautiful gift for friends who could use a vacation, or the one who jets off to the coast every chance they get. Handmade in Kentucky.
