Paul J. Stankard: Spider Orchid Study
This stunning paperweight is a study on the spider orchid.
Paul J. Stankard, who has been a fulltime studio artist since 1972, says he has been challenged by the goal of advancing the floral paperweight tradition. By engaging in the flameworking and coldworking process, he says, he has invented ways to express the seen and unseen beauty of nature. He seeks to integrate mysticism with botanical realism, giving the glass organic credibility.
- This piece was handmade by Stankard in 1977
