Inhabited Paperweight Artist Proofs (3" Diameter)
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.
