It is a wonderful thing to have something this special; the only "Daisies and Berries Bouquet" in existence. Chris Buzzini is one of the premier contemporary glass artists. His work is always in demand. I have had the great good fortune to know Chris for quite a few years, amazed at his talent. Without question, Chris Buzzini's, floral, art glass paperweights are among the finest ever produced. Stunning, art glass paperweights for the serious Art Glass collector. Extremely detailed, meticulously crafted, colored glass flowers encapsulated in brilliant, optical quality crystal. Fine, delicate, floral, art glass paperweights that are destined to become tomorrow's treasures. In 2010, Chris Buzzini celebrated his 40th anniversary as a working glass artist. He has knowledge and skills in almost every genre of contemporary Glass Art. He was drawn to lampworking because the array of techniques employed can be adapted to create incredible detail, a principal strength of Buzzini’s work. He states, "the 'lampworking process' by nature, is a cumulative one, and allows an artist to build on his own ability and creativity." He has been producing Lampwork Glass Paperweights since 1986 and has a following of Paperweight/Art Glass Collectors from around the world. His work truly is outstanding. There are so few lampwork artists in the world; in my opinion, he (and Paul Stankard) are the two best contemporary lampwork glass artists; more likely they are the two best lampwork glass artists ever. I have been reluctantly selling a piece occasionally. I am listing some other unique items from Chris as well. His early dagger, also a one and only, is already listed. We will be listing some of his early imaginative cups as well. Unfortunately, Chris has suffered increasing health problems. He feels he may be at the end of his career, and perhaps has produced his last paperweight. I would find that a great loss, and keep him in my thoughts with hopes that he may resume his art.
This is a large weight, approximately 3 inches diameter. It is in Very Good Condition With no losses. Truly an exquisite piece.
Please excuse any glare from the lighting in my studio or my flash. The weight itself is very good.
