Glass paperweights have been described as one of the worlds best-kept secrets. The secret is not because of a conspiracy, but because of a simple lack of exposure. This is a real shame, because once people see them, understand how they are made, and their history, they are genuinely fascinated with them.
I'll bet many of you were surprised to find a slide show presentation about paperweights. I know that I've told people that I collect glass paperweights, and their response has been, You collect what? I've never heard of anyone collecting those.
I hope this presentation will help you understand the magical beauty of paperweights, and that you will derive the pleasure from them that I do. Hopefully, you will also develop an appreciation of this art form and an understanding of the significance of paperweights in the art world.
