Beauty Beyond Nature Paperweights

New Jersey-based artist Paul Stankard is largely considered as the father of modern glass paperweights because of the translucent orbs he created that are bursting with activity, life, and color. While Paul was in college, he discovered the manual process of creating scientific instruments out of glass – or, scientific glass blowing. He worked with industrial glass for 10 years and eventually lead to experimenting with creating glass paperweights. His paperweight glass creations focuses on flowers, bees, vines, and leaves encased in glass, embracing and capturing the beauty of the natural world in a single glass moment. Video:
