|Magic in the Glass - The
Paperweight Artistry of Charles Kaziun, Jr.
by Bernard A. Drabeck
Charles Kaziun was among the most famous of the American paperweight artists. He is often credited with contributing to the rebirth of interest in paperweight making. He made paperweights from the 1940s until his death in 1992. In writing this book, Ben Drabeck has given us a close look at the remarkable accomplishments of Charles Kaziun. At the same time, he has shown us the human side of the artist. A wonderful, well written book.
The book includes interviews with his family, a "memoir" compiled from talks he gave, and tributes from such paperweight notables as Paul Jokelson and Debbie Tarsitano. It also includes a extensive catalog of the amazing variety of weights, bottles, buttons and related objects that Kaziun made.
