By Leslie Pina

Archimede Seguso (1909-1999), one of the great Muranese masters, took traditional glassmaking techniques to extremes.
His introduction of merletto lacework technique at the Venice Biennale of 1952 turned heads.
His secret for embedding fine lacy threads of glass was never shared. Rather than apply the filigree to the surface of vessels as was traditionally done, Seguso floated these delicate wisps of color i
Archimede Seguso was also a sculptor. His preference for solid glass and love of nature resulted in a glass menagerie of feathered, scaled, and furry creatures.

By Susanne K. Frantz

For Lino Tagliapietra, glass art represents his life: Venice and the lagoon, its shadow and light.
"It is part of my culture, my brain, my blood," he says. Raised on the island of Murano, Tagliapietra rose from a working class family and a minimal education to become
an internationally acknowledged glass artist and maestro, an honor given to the most highly recognized of Italian glassmakers.
Tagliapietra worked exclusively on Murano until coming to the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington at the invitation of Benjamin Moore in 1979.

By Karen S. Chambers, Tina Oldknow

The difficulty in assessing glass art lies in separating artistic ability and intent from the sheer sensual beauty of the material.
Can a shimmering emerald piece of glass be improved by letting an artist mold its shape or decorate its surface?
Clearly Inspired is a lively catalog written to accompany an exhibition (in Tampa and Fort Wayne) exploring the premise that contemporary studio glass artists draw on historical antecedents.
Chambers and Oldknow, who have both written previous books on glass art and artists, illustrate this premise with examples of Roman, French, Venetian, German, and Russian glass and the work of 20 cont
