Summary

Summary

Glass has always been used in architecture and design to enhance space and generate light, and in recent years glass artists have taken glass art to another level. This book presents an outstanding collaboration of thirty-five of the top glass craftsmen with top architects and artists from around the world. Large-scale and small-scale works of art for public spaces, corporate projects, and private collectors are featured in these pages. Using traditional and alternative materials and techniques, each artist is presented in six-page portfolio sections providing the reader with an in-depth view of each artist's inspiration, design philosophy, special techniques, and finished body of work.
