Asian Rose on Bamboo

I welcomed the opportunity to travel to Japan with Paul Stankard in 1999. My assignment was to assist Paul in teaching the first flame working class at Kanazu Forest Creation Foundation, Ezra Glass Studio in Fukui, Japan. When not working, I found time to observe the vegetation that surrounded the studio. Once back home in Westmont, I commemorated this experience in weights that combine bamboo with the delicacy of the Asian rose.
