Description The book presents essays that focus on the history of glass, from as early as 3000 BC, when it was traditionally used as a pottery glaze, through to contemporary glassmaking techniques. Further essays introduce the new approaches that contemporary makers are adopting and examines the direction in which this medium is presently moving, whilst addressing some of the recurring concepts and themes prevalent in contemporary glass design. "Contemporary Glass" presents an authoritative overview of an arts and craft scene that is both departing from, and building on its origins, while forming new directions within which practitioners work and wherein their work is appreciated.
