Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) July 27, 2006
Glass Atlas (http://www.glassatlas.com), has announced a new line of artistic paperweights called Spaceweights that utilize satellite imagery of the earth. Each unique Spaceweight showcases authentic images from space full of vibrant colors that are magnified inside a high quality clear crystal dome. The Spaceweights, presented in a custom wooden box, are a unique personalized gift for the travel season. An information tag is included describing the image and the geographic region resulting in an elegant and educational gift! The paperweights weigh one-pound five-ounces and retail for $49.00 per weight.
Co-founders, Beth Jeronimus and Kathryn Matthews explain, “We wanted to create a product that was a fusion of art and science. We also wanted to incorporate the exquisite images taken by satellites and bring them to the public’s attention. Nothing is more beautiful than our earth from the perspective of space. It is pure art.”
How do they do it? Glass Atlas focuses on different regions that are specifically requested by their customers, using scientific data to acquire these images. Afterwards, Glass Atlas embeds each image in a high quality domed magnifying crystal. Custom engraving is available upon request including company logos, quotes and dates.
Kathryn Matthews noted "Spaceweights are a very popular anniversary gift because a location can be chosen that has significance to the couple. Since we do offer engraving services for an additional fee, customers often request special dates or phrases to be engraved on the crystal Spaceweight. They also make wonderful corporate gifts."
