Spark the creative flame

by Paul J Stankard | 01 December 2013
Category: Art & Design
Synopsis
This is a resource that strives to inform, inspire, and motivate all who work in craft and wish to improve the creative expression of their work. While the book features flameworked glass and a selection of the leading artisans who do this work, the insights and recommendations presented transcend material and speak to broader issues relevant to all creative craftspeople. The book is made up of three parts, presented in engaging and accessible language. The first section consists of three essays by scholar-artists that provide essential context for the book by considering the recent history of craft; the relationships among craft, design, and art; and the many facets of beauty. Section two presents a personal retrospective on the 50-year career of internationally acclaimed artist Paul J Stankard. A pioneer in the Studio Glass Movement, Stankard is considered a living master in the art of floral paperweight making. The third section provides overviews of the careers of twelve highly regarded contemporary glass artists. Collectively, the reader is presented with insightful perspectives on the aspirations, strategies, challenges, and accomplishments of a representative sample of internationally respected flameworking artists.
