Cosmic Vision was one of the best selling Magnum size paperweights ever. The colours used, and the swirling, twisting central design motif was universally popular. It was featured as the cover shot for the Charlton Catalogue of Caithness Paperweights, which is a complete listing of weights issued between 1969- 1999.The catalogue has over five hundred pages, and gives original selling price and current valuation of all paperweights illustrated.

Monet's Japanese bridge painting has always fascinated me. This interpretation,viewed through a large front facet, shows a floating waterlily set upon a blue/green pool, within the glass.A two dip green and gold overlay on either side of the bridge enables the engraving to cut through both colours to produce an interesting background to the Pool at Giverny.

Blue Moon, issued in 1998 features a sparkling dichroic ground. Clearly visible through the 'Window' facet, a vibrant blue moon rises behind towering Lunar Mountains. Issued in a limited edition of 650, the edition sold out by 2000.

Inspired by Kandinsky’s 'Painting With Green Center' , this paperweight was commissioned by The Art Institute of Chicago’s Museum Shop, and proved very popular with Kandinsky followers. 'Painting With Green Center' is in the Museum’s permanent collection.
