Futagami Polyhedral Brass Paperweight
These heavy brass paperweights with its parallel faces are sculptural pieces on its own. A crude casting surface known as "IHADA" creates a textured antique finish. The paperweights gradually change its color over the course of years due to oxidization. The longer it is used, the richer and subtler it becomes.
