Large Hand Blown Clear Glass Balance Scale



Hand blown glass balance scale by Andy Paiko. The balance is accurate to within one gram. Part of a very limited series, each instrument varies significantly in detail and complexity, making each one unique. Artist Andy Paiko works to examine the role of glass in relation to its function. This research has led him away from abstraction towards a symbolic way of dealing with the form/function relationship. He creates each piece to be metaphorical; it could comment on the difficulty of decision making in everyday life, the relationship of society with nature or language, or the way the mind grasps experience through dreams.
