Heritage Glass Paperweight – The Sun Appearing Through Dark Clouds c. 1972



Handmade by Canberra Glassworks, these paperweights were commissioned by the Duldig Studio in 2021.  The featured image is turned into a decal and fired onto the rear surface of the glass. The glass itself is made by ladling molten glass into a graphite mould. Each one is hand-made and therefore you may see slight difference in thickness, the occasional small bubble or tool mark.

The Sun Appearing Through Dark Clouds c. 1972

Karl Duldig (1902-1986) 

‘Antique’ (mouth blown) glass and lead cames
54 x 54cm
Collection:  One of six Holocaust Memorial windows at the Kadimah Jewish Cultural Centre and National Library.

About the design: 
All the windows of this series use vibrant high quality ‘Antique’ or mouth blown glass and lead cames and were designed as an integral part of the building when it was built in 1972. The six stained glass panels in the Memorial Hall are devoted to the memory of our people who lost their lives as victims of Nazi persecution. They also express the feeling of hope for the future.

“Stormy clouds of a period of horror and persecution, but brilliant trumpets of light dominate and radiate hope.”

You are able to visit the Kadimah Jewish Cultural Centre (7 Selwyn St, Elsternwick) and see the windows for yourself. The building also features a bas-relief by Karl Duldig on the facade.

Cost: $60 + $15 postage, to arrange collection from the museum please contact us at enquiries@duldig.org.au
