Nearly 600 brilliantly detailed photos capture the work of 112 glass artists and show the tremendous diversity, depth, and breadth of how this ancient medium is used in the twenty-first century. New and emerging glass artists are featured together with well-known experts, and all of them challenge the boundaries of familiar techniques. Many of these artists also teach or continue research into the capabilities of glass. Many have won major awards; still others have been the subject of media attention; and many are mentors and leaders of contemporary glass art. Their towering installations, miniscule insects, glass kimonos, and more will inspire everyone interested in appreciating, working with, or collecting glass.

About the Publisher

Schiffer Publishing

Located in Chester County, Pennsylvania, Schiffer Books got its start in 1974 publishing historical reports using a mimeograph machine on the owner's kitchen table. A few years later, Schiffer moved to the basement of a barn on the family's farm property. More than 50 years later, Schiffer Publishing is still an independent publisher of 7,000 titles at the Book Farm in Atglen, PA, where visitors are welcome to browse the library.
