Paul J. Stankard is an American artisanal craftsman and glassblower based in New Jersey. He is largely acclaimed as the father of modern glass paperweights.
By blending mysticism with magical realism, I work to express organic credibility through my botanical interpretations. Crafted in glass, I reference the continuum of nature and celebrate on an intimate level her primal beauty. I am influenced by the poetry of Walt Whitman.Paul J. Stankard
