Selector Statement

Kumo is a subtle and profound play on the souvenir as a reminder of a particular place, experience, and time. This ethereal, laser-etched paperweight was designed as a high-end souvenir of Philip Johnson’s Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. Airy, reflective, and small enough to hold in your hands, it is a tangible representation of the way it feels to be on the grounds of this architectural masterwork.

–Silbert, Susie J.
