Charles Kaziun has been called the "Father of the American Paperweight Renaissance" for his influential role in the modern era of paperweight making. This definitive record of Charles Kaziun¹s many accomplishments includes interviews, a "memoir" compiled from talks he gave, and tributes from such paperweight notables as Paul Jokelson and Debbie Tarsitano. The more than 450 full-color images of Kaziun weights present a visual record of his work in all its brilliant variety, including an entire chapter on his renowned signature piece, the crimped flower. Author Ben Drabeck has done a masterful job compiling this comprehensive work from both primary and existing sources, and offers commentary that is concise and illuminating. Over 400 color photographs. Cloth cover/jacket.
