This weight is when Paul began going outside of the box by intentionally unevenly spacing the flower petals in his work. This gives a more realistic natural look rather than the standard balanced and even flowers that is the standard for glass artists. The nature of this of work is an important part of what contributed to propelling him to be the "father of the modern paperweight".
