This is a page for decorated paperweights in many types of wood and with a range of inserts.
Wood is not heavy enough to act as a paperweight on its own so they are filled with metal; they all weigh at least 300g (that's 10 ounces in old money).
The centre portion - in a carefully chosen contrasting wood, patinated copper disc made by a friend, old coin or ceramic disc with picture by Katherine - serves to cover the hole where metal is poured and as an element of the design.
Please click on the thumbnails to see larger, and clearer, pictures. Many of the pieces shown with prices are available for purchase through this web site. Other pieces may be available at the various galleries which stock the work.
Please note that the prices include postage and packing for mainland UK orders. Charges are also quoted for delivery to some other countries; these are based roughly on the extra cost of posting abroad. Please contact us for prices elsewhere.
