Intermediate Glass class visits Paul Stankard

ImageA quick post: Yesterday, I took my Intermediate Glass class to visit Paul Stankard and see his studio. Paul gave us a tour of the studio and told us stories about his career and journey with glass. Ché came along and Paul was really excited to see him. ImageWe all had pizza for lunch and then he did a demonstration making one of the small figures he puts in his pieces. He even recited one of his poems for us. We went for a short nature walk in his yard to see the first blossoming flowers of the spring. The students were all very excited and Paul was very giving with his knowledge and stories of perseverance. It was a beautiful day and I’m very grateful to Paul for sharing his studio and passion for his work with us.
