Lampwork Paperweights by Chris Buzzini

Oregon City’s Chris Buzzini keeps the 150-year-old craft of lampwork paperweights alive. These crystalline balls, with tiny, detailed floral arrangements inside, require a jeweler’s touch and years of experience to make. Only 20 people in the world make lampwork paperweights.

First Broadcast: 2008
