Rabbits Glass Paperweight

About the Artist

Robin Lehman, a two-time Academy Award winning documentary filmmaker, was introduced to glass working at the Corning Museum of Glass, where he was invited to video the artists. He quickly began to experiment himself, exploring several different areas, including casting techniques, lamp working, and a combination of the two that produces a unique lead crystal. Inspired by nature and the arts, Robin Lehman's glass paperweight subjects range from the abstract, to realistic sea creatures, insects, and animals.

Description

This unique lead crystal paperweight combines lampworking and casting techniques to highlight two rabbits nestled together. The rabbits were cast from a netsuke, a miniature sculpture first developed in Japan in the 17th century, and originally used as a fastener or toggle. These highly collectible and coveted art forms often depict animals from the Asian zodiac, mythological creatures, and scenes from everyday life. Here one of these miniature masterpieces is encased in glass that has been ground and polished into a hexagon. The intricate details of the rabbits glow with color when lit from above, an enchanting effect created by dichroic glass on the bottom. All paperweights are signed by the artist, Robin Lehman.
