Jim Brown began collecting paperweights in 1996, and became more and more interested in the beauty and intricacy of fine antique weights. At that stage, his long career first in the Navy and then as an engineer, was not providing the creative fulfillment he desired. After leaving his job in 1999 he enrolled in the glass program at Tennessee Technology University. Jim has developed his own skills in paperweights making and enjoys the challenges of this difficult medium. His focus early on was to emulate the antique English Bacchus weights and later added early French weights to his repertoire. Since then he has expanded his range to include many original designs of his own. His cane pulls are intentionally small to afford a constantly changing selection of murrini from which to choose. He generally works alone and pulls all of his own cane, does his own set-ups and all cutting and polishing of his paperweights. This not only appeals to his artisan sensibilities, but also affords him to the opportunity to change any of the design variables at any point in the process. Operating his own studio since 2008 he looks forward to experimenting with new crystal formulations and many new design opportunities.
