Book Description

This exhibition catalog from the Orlando Museum of Art showcases works from many outstanding private collections of studio glass in Central Florida, and includes works by several generations of American artists who have been major contributors to the development of studio glass over the past 50 years. These include artist and educator Harvey K. Littleton whose workshops at the Toledo Museum of Art in 1962 launched the Studio Glass Movement in America. Littleton and others also established important glassmaking programs at universities around the country. Through the 1970s and ‘80s, a growing number of important glass artists began to emerge from these programs to gain international reputations. Some of the artists that came to the forefront during this period include Martin Blank, Daniel Clayman, Jon Kuhn, William Morris, Christopher Ries, Therman Statom, Steven Weinberg and Toots Zynsky. In the past three decades these and other artists in the exhibition have created a critical mass of talent that has brought studio glass into the mainstream of contemporary art.

The artists listed above represent mainstream developments in studio glass over the past several decades. However, other artists such as Sydney Cash, Einar and Jamex de la Torre, Andrew Erdos, Stephen Knapp and Tim Tate are working with glass in exciting new ways. Some of these artists incorporate multimedia, such as light, video and sound. International artists have also played a key role to the development of studio glass in the past 50 years. Some European artists featured in the catalog include the Italian master Lino Tagliapietra, the Czech husband-and-wife team Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová, Laura de Santillana, Livio Seguso, Silvio Vigliaturo and Czeslaw Zuber.
