Ken Rosenfeld first came into contact with paperweights when he worked at Correia Art Glass in southern California. He experimented with new ideas and by the mid- 80s he started to create his own designs. Ken's meticulously detailed lampwork designs include flowers, floral bouquets, fruit and vegetables. Earlier weights often had an "R" signature cane on the side of the dome and were generally fully signed - or had a KR monogram - and dated. More recent weights usually have an "R" signature cane and a date cane under the motif.
