This volume also features essays by Andrew Page, editor of Glass Quarterly, Michael Petty, artist and Director of MOCA, London, and Heike Brachlow, MPhil research student at the Royal College of Art, which invariably focus on the history of the studio glass revolution, the deployment of colour, light and transparency in glass and the increasingly complex relationship between the artist and the craftsman and its subsequent implications for perceptions of the medium. Contemporary Glass is an essential guide to an arts and craft scene that is both departing from, and building on its origins, while formulating new directions within which practitioners can work.
