Show off your commitment to health and wellness with this beautiful, hand-blown glass apple paperweight by artist Mark Matthews. The artwork comes with a DVD about the artist called “Glass Masters at Work: Mark Matthews” a film by Academy and Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker, Robin Lehman.
About the artist: Mr. Matthews, independent glass artist, has a studio located within Sauder Village in Archbold, OH. Mining 5,000 years of glass history as a rich source of inspiration, Matthews has become internationally recognized for his mastery of the glass sphere. He started handling molten glass for aesthetic purposes in 1974 while still an undergraduate at glorious Kent State University. After receipt of his MFA from Ohio University, he began working full-time in glass, concentrating nearly exclusively on spheres in 1985. “For me, the sphere is a device that unifies my radically diverse explorations in glass”, says Mr. Matthews who utilizes both modern and ancient techniques to create everything from traditional swirls and lutz marbles to realistic interpretations of animal pelts.
