Tara Alfano, General Manager and Director of Media
As a paperweight collector who is interested in the process of how paperweights are made, Tara Alfano is eager to share the beautiful art form of paperweights with the younger population. She insists, "Not a lot of young adults know about paperweights and the intricacy of them. It is such a delicate and unique art form that I would love other people my age to learn about and appreciate."
