Oregon glass artist, Chris Buzzini began using his lampworking skills on botanical materials in paperweights in 1983. These deep blue asters are certainly a true sign of his artistry and the very clear glass surrounding sets the aster and leaf lampworking off beautifully. He signs his pieces in script on the side of the paper weight as he has on this one dated 1999. Buzzini began working with glass in 1970 and has been working as an independent studio artist since 1986. He has expertise in various glassworking techniques, including flameworking, torch working, murrini making, and cold lamination.
Buzzini has been an important contributor to Correia Art Glass, Lundberg Studios, and Orient & Flume Art Glass. His work has been included in many books on paperweights and is in the permanent collections of several museums.
