Wausau Daily Herald - Glassmaker encases natural world within his intricate art [cached]

Steve Mann, traveling exhibitions coordinator for the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, places Paul Stankard's glass paperweights in a custom made display as he sets up the new exhibit at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, which opens Saturday.Corey Schjoth/Wausau Daily Herald

It's a craft that Stankard practically reinvented, since glassworking techniques were a heavily guarded secret when Stankard began his career, said Steve Mann, traveling exhibitions coordinator from the Museum of Arts & Design in New York City.
Mann was in Wausau this week to install Stankard's exhibit.
Mann said that when Stankard began rediscovering glass paperweights as an art form, lampwork artisans wouldn't reveal their secrets to him.
Through trial and error, Mann said, Stankard taught himself the process.
"He recreated an art form that nobody would tell him," Mann said."He mastered it and surpassed history.And it wasn't long before he was accepted as an artist."
The exhibit roughly follows Stankard's artistic growth, from his early, traditionally shaped round paperweights through encasing his art in plexiglass then in polished glass bricks.
"Now he's making these orbs," Mann said, pointing to a perfect glass sphere containing a botanical study."He works with a lensmaker.This piece is actually encased in a cube, then he put six lenses around it."Viewers should keep in mind that the lenses magnify the intricate art inside.
It's more than simply something pretty.Stankard's art "speaks about the cycle of life," Mann said.
Mann said the cases his museum commissioned to hold Stankard's paperweights continue that natural theme."The measurements are based on the Golden Spiral," the natural mathematical sequence that helps snails built spiral shells, for example.
"The lines and dimensions in the cases aren't based on your normal 8-by-10 (prints) but might be three by nine," Mann said."These are natural dimensions and that helps it feel right."
The cases are set up in such a way that visitors must move around to see all the pieces."People will walk around and discover things as they look closely," Mann said.
