Doug Heller: So there was that thing. Then you had people like Paul Stankard. Paul comes from a very different background than the academic world. You know, he’s a brilliant technician and somebody as an individual who is so genuine and in touch with his own feelings and the kind of spiritual aspect of what religion has to offer that he brought something very real to a traditional craft form—paperweight making—which, for the most part, was quite sterile. But Paul revolutionized the whole thing, and I think that’s what attracted Paul Hollister to Paul’s work. It was truly, quietly revolutionary.
