Pig Red Envelope – Paperweightby Lawrence Lane for Dynasty Gallery
The twelfth animal in the Chinese zodiac, Pig is a symbol of wealth, as is the “lucky red envelope” which will bring joy and prosperity all year long. To create the Year of the Pig envelope, the glassmakers hand cast and then carefully sandblast the design onto the glass envelope. Gold paint is then applied by hand onto the design to complete the festive look.
