Studio Paran is the creative endeavor of Richard Jones, located in the Shenks Corners neighborhood of Madison Wisconsin. We make glass vases and sometimes art. When I’m not blowing glass I’m renovating the other half of my block building into an apartment, playing with my kids, trying to learn about Ikebana and and how to grow things. Gardening and art, Art and gardening. I also enjoy Madison’s crisp lakes, when I can from the seat of a kayak. This Blog is meant as a gift, a little window into a working artist life, hopefully focusing more on the inspirations rather than the frustrations. Van Gogh once said art is like looking at a beautiful newborn baby, you can oh and ah but don’t ask to see the bloody sheets.

That said I’ll try to keep it upbeat!
