Small Worlds highlights different techniques, styles, and various types of paperweights from the 19th century, the classic period for paperweight manufacture, to present day. This exhibition features works from the classic period by European glass factories like French crystal manufacturers Baccarat, Clichy, and Saint-Louis. Paperweight production all but ceased in late 19th century Europe, but was revived in the mid-20th century in both Europe and the United States. Independent artists experimented with new designs, techniques, and materials. Some of the earliest contemporary paperweights in Small Worlds were created by Charles Kaziun and Dominick Labino, both members of the Studio Glass Movement. Numerous works by Paul Stankard, Rick Ayotte, and Cathy Richardson as well as artworks by seventeen other contemporary paperweight makers are also featured.
