About us

The Paperweight Collectors Association – Venezuela was formed to curate a modern paperweight and murrine collection. Its objective is to foster the divulgation of these related art forms in Venezuela.

The paperweight collection is predominantly composed of lampwork creations by American, French, Scottish and Japanese artists. Although limited in size to thirty-eight weights, it is not static. In a continuing effort to improve the collection’s diversity and quality, existing pieces are constantly reviewed and often sold or exchanged.

The murrine collection is portrait oriented. Murrine are found incorporated in paperweights and more commonly in the form of tiles, slabs or coins.

The Association is happy to show its various glass art pieces through this website and hopes you enjoy them as much as its members do.
