Paul Stankard, Homage to Nature

In Paul Stankard, Homage to Nature, decorative arts curator Ulysses Grant Dietz writes with east and affection about this gregarious, immensely talented artist. With background in technical glassmaking, Stankard began crating his first paperweights in 1971; by the end of that decade he has become nationally known. Today his work is in the collections of such museums as The Corning Museum of Glass, The Art Institute of Chicago, and others. More than 180 photographs by fine arts photographer John Bigelow Taylor display close to 200 paperweights and botanicals made by Paul Stankard. Also included are photographs showing the actual preparation and assembly of the flowers, root people, and insects encased in glass. No other glass art book has ever shown a glass artist’s process of creation as it is depicted here. Collectors of glass and beautiful object will be dazzled and moved the by artistry and appreciation Paul Stankard brings to natural art forms. 160 pages, full color. Hardcover.


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.
