‘Delft Paper Weight Box Set' is a set of 4 glass paperweights, lined by contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen. Each mini paperweight measures 5.6cm in diameter and the set of 4 comes in a presentation box measuring 18 x 18cm. From a limited edition of 200, these sets are unnumbered and unsigned.

Magnus Gjoen - former designer for Vivienne Westwood - knows a thing or two about style. Having recently turned his hand to the art of print making, Gjoen creates images that are full of startling beauty as well as a profundity of thought: his art explores the interaction between power and fragility, juxtaposing the two states for maximum conceptual effect.



‘Delft Paper Weight Box Set’ are a set of four, glass paperweights, lined with the image of a human skull. Gjoen has decorated each skull with a different Baroque, floral pattern, which seems to melt into the inky black background, highlighting the gossamer line between life and death. A beautifully tactile work of art, Gjoen’s paperweight set is the ultimate memento mori.





About The Artist - Magnus Gjoen


Magnus Gjoen - former designer for Vivienne Westwood - knows a thing or two about style. Having recently turned his hand to the art of print making, Gjoen creates images that are full of startling beauty as well as a profundity of thought.


His art explores the interaction between power and fragility, juxtaposing the two states for maximum conceptual effect. Using collage and bricolage, often layering sumptuous gold leaf against stark black and white, Gjoen’s work blends a range of styles and media, incorporating a street and pop aesthetic into a fine art approach. His pieces draw on history and allusion, using existing art works or fragments from the past to create his own, contemporary aesthetic.

Gjoen’s work treads a delicate line between humour and horror, and what is borne out of these two opposing forces is often haunting and unsettling, while always saturated with an unrivalled beauty. A tightrope walk of contradictions, Gjoen’s work is rich, evocative and unabashedly glamorous, a combination that marks the emerging British artist out as a unique force to be reckoned with.
