This striking gift book features luminous photos of world-renowned glass artist Paul Stankard’s astonishing art paired with insightful writing for all who seek out and appreciate creative energy. Stunning, full-page photos of Stankard’s paperweights show fascinating worlds: bees captured in flight, botanically exact bouquets, and miniature humanlike creatures are captured in bursting color. His unmatched technical skill is one-half of what has made Stankard a master in glass art; the other half is his artistry, which he explores his insights on, sharing his thoughts about the energy behind the pieces. Stankard discusses key topics for all artists, such as building a routine, learning from failure, and fusing spirituality and artmaking. Stories of his own challenges and successes through the decades offer examples of how to navigate both with an open mind and readiness to learn. Collectors and aficionados of fine craft will enjoy this immersive experience in fine art, and especially in what leads up to it.
