Paul J. Stankard: Homage to Nature
With 180 of his works illustrated in colour, as well as photographs showing the preparation and assembly of the pieces, this is a study of the glass art of Paul J. Stankard, who is known especially for his paperweights. Stankard paperweights are all unique, encasing roses, lilacs, orchids and fantasy flowers created from spun filaments. There are also bees and damselflies, glistening raspberries, and "root people" - tawny-coloured creatures made to resemble living plant roots. Even more complex are Stankard's "botanicals" - upright cloistered glass forms, often in diptych and triptych formations.
