Kaziun, Charles Jr.

Charles Kaziun (1919-1992) - or Charles Kaziun Jr. as he is sometimes referred to - was one of the pioneers involved in re-discovering the techniques of the old French glassworks. By the mid-1940s he was making a wide range of millefiori paperweights (many including silhouettes), lampwork and related items, such as scent bottles. He perfected the art of miniaturization and created the most amazing detail in the smallest of spaces. During his lifetime he used a large variety of “K” signature canes. His later work often contains, in addition to the signature cane, a small gold foil “K”, embedded on the underside of the weight or colour ground.
