Although people have heated silica to form glass for thousands of years, the contemporary art glass movement began with a simple workshop just 40 years ago.

Contemporary Glass presents the stellar work of artists important to the early expansion of the field, as well as new artists who continue to explore this most beautiful and demanding art medium.
This book is a treasured resource for both collectors and artist.
