Abstract or Description
Contemporary Glass is a stunning portrait and thorough analysis of glass as artistic medium, featuring an inspiring collection of work by international artists and essays from distinguished figures in the field. Profiling over 60 contemporary glassmakers working today, Contemporary Glass presents an authoritative overview of an arts and craft scene that is both departing from and building on its origins, whilst forming exciting new directions. A rich and informative text, Contemporary Glass presents the fascinating history of glass and introduces readers to the new approaches contemporary artists are adopting today. Addressing recurring concepts and themes prevalent in contemporary glass design, the book investigates the ever-increasing ways that technical and conceptual boundaries of glass design are being challenged and merged with art and architecture. Includes the work of Angues M Powers, Beth Lipman, Dale Chihuly, Ingrid Nord, Ione Throkelsson, Mike Kelly, Tanya Pak, and Tobias Rehberger, amongst others. Visually arresting and expertly composed, Contemporary Glass is an essential resource for glassworkers, artists, and anyone interested in this remarkable form of art.
