Item Description...
The V&A Museum's international collection of contemporary glass includes work by some of the most important names in this dynamic art form. The wide range of the collection demonstrates the versatility of this popular medium. Superb photography, much of it newly commissioned, is accompanied by career profiles of the 60 international artists featured, including Dale Chihuly and William Morris from the USA, Tessa Clegg and David Reekie from the UK, Bernard Dejonghe from France, Klaus Moje from Australia, Ann Robinson from New Zealand and Yoshihiko Takahashi from Japan. The illustrations of artworks from 1990 onwards are illuminated by the artists' statements or contemporary critical comment. These are further contextualized by the introductory essay which summarizes the history of contemporary glass art and addresses frequently asked questions and misapprehensions about an art form that is often the subject of passionate debate.
For the serious collector and researcher the book also includes a complete list of artists and their work held in the V&A's leading collection.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An impressively beautiful introduction   Nov 13, 2004
Contemporary International Glass: 60 Artists In The V&A by Jennifer Hawkins Opie (V&A's curator of contemporary glass and a leading expert in this specialized field) is an impressively beautiful introduction and survey of the V&A's outstanding collection of glass art. Each showcased piece is presented in a full-color photograph, along with a statement (if any) by the artist, information concerning its composition, the training, professional, and teaching experience of the artist, and notable critical commentary. A wide variety of modern images, colors, suggestions and themes from classical design to abstract sculpture fill this remarkable display of uniquely modern art.
