Paul Stankard Class 2003

Lea was recently honored to attend a three-day workshop in Brooklyn, NY with internationally renowned glass artist, Paul Stankard. Stankard, who is acclaimed for his incredibly accurate renditions of botanicals in his highly collectible crystal paperweights, is shown here demonstrating his lampworking prowess to the class.

Paul's witty and humorous presentation kept the class amazed!

This shows Lea's lampwork components ready for the encasing procedure.
