About Ken Rosenfeld's work…
The highest level of glassblowing skill is represented in contemporary lampwork paperweights. These miniature works of art are extremely labor intensive. Each flower petal and leaf, every component of the design is made individually, by hand, one at a time. It is then assembled to create the arrangement you see. Then, in a separate procedure, the lampwork design is encased. Encapsulated in crystal clear glass, the design is forever sealed in its own little world.
Ken Rosenfeld's paperweight expertise evolved from a formal art and technical background. A Bachelor's degree from the University of California and a Master's of Fine Arts degree from Southern Illinois University complete the education. Over twenty years of studio and scientific glasswork have also provided essential steps in his artistic development.
The creative challenges of glass have guided him to pursue a career in lampwork paperweights. His glass art is documented in several current books and is included in the permanent collections of the following:
Museum of American Glass,WheatonArts, New Jersey
Canterbury Museum, New Zealand
The Bergstrom-Mahler Museum, Wisconsin
