Abstract:

An unrivalled resource on the international glass art movement offering a reference to glass artists, design historians, and collectors of contemporary design.

"In the early 1960s advances in small furnace technology allowed artistic creation in glass to move from industrial setting to artist's studio. This triggered an explosion of form, style and technique in glass making, boosted by a shared global drive towards freedom of artistic expression in glass unparalleled in its 4,000-year history. Today there are close to 5,000 glass artists working around the world, with museums such as the Corning Museum of Glass in the USA and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London creating new galleries to house their burgeoning collections of contemporary glass design. Artists in Glass is a timely international survey of the art glass movement today, exploring its dynamic history and looking to its future through the lives and works of the artists themselves." "Nearly 80 of the world's best glass artists, from Harvey Littleton and Erwin Eisch to the great practitioners of today such as Dante Marioni and Giles Bettison, are included in the book. The author discusses the artists' training, their influences, and their techniques and explores the individual style of each artist in the context of their work and the art glass movement as a whole. A revealing introduction describes the 40 years of conceptual and technological advances that brought about this explosion of artistic creation in glass, while a detailed glossary gives explanations of key terms and techniques. A selective bibliography lists publications about the artists, and details are given of galleries worldwide where glass art can be seen." "With an authoritative text by world glass expert Dan Klein and superb photography of over 300 works, Artists in Glass is an unrivalled resource on the international glass art movement, offering a stunning work of reference to glass artists, design historians, and collectors of this thriving area of contemporary design."--Jacket.
