Nature in a Sculptured Glass Orb

This was a real find, Paul J. Stankard an American glass artist that encapsulates nature in his globes and glass forms.  We have included 2 videos that go into his life history and how he came to producing these intricate glass sculptures, so we are going to skip this.  The images can be enlarges so that  you can see some of the amazing details he manages to add in them.  Maybe more beautiful that the finish piece is seeing Stankard producing these small masterpieces, you can see it in the first video.  The second one goes a bit more in depth into his work and his relationship with the Akron Art Museum, which houses the largest public collection of his work.
