									Art Glass Paperweights

I have a shop that sells art glass. My favorite art glass is
paperweights. I have a lot of fun attending art auctions and buying art
glass. I try to pay attention to what my friends and clients like and
dislike.

I usually give people art glass paperweights that I find at art auctions
for milestone birthdays and anniversaries. My grandmother turned eighty
last October and I found a wonderful art glass paperweight for her.

The art glass paperweight that I found for my grandmother was made by
Baccarat. I was extremely lucky that this was one of the last things
auctioned. A lot of people had already left the art auction when this
item went on the block. My grandmother appreciated the pansy design
because the pansy is her favorite flower.

My cousin loves frogs. She has managed to decorate her home tastefully
with her favorite item. I have been on the lookout for an art glass
paperweight for her for years. I finally found one at an art auction I
was at last year. The art glass paperweight featured a frog sitting on a
lily pad and the frog was surrounded by blue water. It was really pretty
and my cousin started using it on her desk immediately.

My aunt collects art glass paperweights. I have been asked by her on
numerous occasions to find pretty art glass paperweights for her while
I’m attending art auctions. Of all of the pieces I’ve won for her over
the years, one memory sticks out in my memory more than any other.

By far the prettiest art glass paperweight I’ve ever won at an art
auction has to be one that features a blue and gold Macaw. Rick Ayotte
was the artist that created it and it was even featured in a book of his
work. He has created many lovely art glass paperweights.

I have an art glass paperweight in my shop that just won’t sell. It has
been in the store the longest and I think I may have it priced too high.
I won the paperweight at an art auction several years ago for one
thousand dollars. The paperweight was created by Paul Stankard and it
should have easily sold for twice what I paid for it.

I have no trouble at all selling art glass paperweights that were made by
Rick Ayotte. His work seems to draw the most interest. I try to win any
auction I find for art glass paperweights he made. I won one not long
ago that was pink roses. They looked so delicate and sweet. I know that
this art glass paperweight will sell quickly.

There have been some inquiries at my shop for art glass paperweights by
Richard Marquis. I haven’t found any in any of the art auctions I’ve
attended recently. I looked at some of the pieces he’s made and I’m not
especially impressed.

I will keep looking for the art glass paperweights at the art auctions I
attend, but I will not be going way out of my way to track them down. I
will just remember that Marquis is an artist that some of my clients are
really interested in. I’m sure that I will find an art auction with one
of his pieces in it at some point.

There were some   inquiries about nautical themed art glass paperweights a
couple of years   ago and I found a fantastic artist that made them. I buy
every art glass   paperweight I can find that was made by Rick Satava. My
favorite has to   be the coral orange jellyfish that I found at an art
auction an hour   from my home. It was really pretty.

The coral orange jellyfish art glass paperweight was just the first Rick
Satava piece that I’ve found at various art auctions. I’ve also found
jellyfish in ruby and blue. They are beautiful by themselves or when
they are put onto a black light stand that has been built especially for
them.
