Written by international glass expert Dan Klein, Artists in Glass provides an up-to-date survey of the international art glass movement, exploring its dynamic history, and looking to its future through the lives and works of nearly 80 of the world's best glass artists. The book includes both those who had a formative influence on the movement such as Harvey Littleton and Erwin Eisch, and the great practitioners of today, among them Dante Marioni and Giles Bettison, and features previously unpublished work by new artists. The author explores each artist in turn, discussing their influences, training, and technique alongside an in-depth discussion of their work. An introduction provides an overview of the art glass movement while a detailed glossary gives explanations of key terms. Also included are a selective bibliography, and details of galleries worldwide where glass art can be seen. Illustrated with 300 superb pieces of glass, Artists in Glass provides a stunning resource for today's glass-makers, design historians, and collectors of this increasingly popular area of contemporary design.
