Shawn Messenger¡¯s work is of unprecedented beauty and quality. Inspired by landscapes, gardens and flowers, she creates brilliant three dimensional gardens of glass in her paperweights, perfume bottles and vessels.

In her paperweights, Shawn incorporates thin veils of color which act as atmospheric breezes frozen in time.
