Inhabited Paperweight Artist Proofs (

These pairings represent compatibility tests for the linear coefficient of expansion of new cane. Like any "Artist's Proof," these Planets show the artist’s hand, thought process, and development of ideas. The differing styles and composition of cane reveal stages of the evolution in Josh's work. These limited edition Artist's Proof Planets are accompanied by snippets of the exact handmade cane used to create each Planet.

Inhabited Paperweights have even more interesting surface geology than the smaller Planets, with calm or swirling oceans, complex structures and lots of activity in the atmosphere above. They always contain signs of intelligent beings either residing or visiting there. I sometimes make this 3" size as spheres (which will fit on a stand), but all these paperweights have a flattened base.
