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.


Made in Kentucky

From a young age, Michael Hudson always had the urge to create. He was introduced to glass in college, and went on to earn a BFA in Art and Design with a specialization in glass. After graduating, Michael moved back home to Louisville, Kentucky, where he helped to start the University of Louisville glass program. In 2007, Michael founded his studio, where he strives to bring nature and design together by creating one-of-a-kind sculptural objects.
