Timeless Magical Treasures

Botany is it! It is all about reconnecting to our natural surroundings... oh, so important this day and age.

These gorgeous paperweights from Tarax Infinity in Concord, Ontario are stunning symbols of Mother Nature. Artist Thoms Clarke invented and now creates these one-of-a-kind masterpieces. Interestingly, the name Tarax Infinity is perfectly symbolic of Nature paperweights... it is derived from the words taraxacum officinale, the dandelion genus and Clarke's signature product.

Amazing how a perfect creation from nature, so incredibly fragile, can be captured and imbedded in such exquisite form.
Dandelion Too! paperweight...
Wisps of the dandelion seed caught as they separate from the puff, as if on the wind... make a wish!
