Photo Essay: A Studio Visit with Practical Art artisan Keith Weiskamp of Scottsdale, AZ

Keith01Scottsdale artists Keith Weiskamp and his wife Cynthia Caldwell are in the flower business. Not in the traditional sense, mind you, but in a magical sense where they create blooms that are impervious to frost, immune to fading, and that will never, ever wilt.  An expert glass blower, Weiskamp fashions these blossoms from molten glass in his home studio. His interest in unique coloration, patterns, and textures ensures that each flower is individual, though they all are made to house a single votive. It’s that little flicker of light from his creations that imbues a sense of life, a little flare of romance. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, what a lovely message to send your sweetheart: instead of roses that wilt and wither, an artisan-crafted bloom that will never die.Keith12KW!
