This faceted glass paperweight sculpture features flameworked blackberries and flowers. Each petal, leaf and berry was created individually and later assembled into the arrangement 'captured' here in glass. Ken Rosenfeld likens his lampworked paperweights to photographs, with each delicate arrangement encapsulated in glass, "forever sealed in its own little world."
