From the Back Cover
The amazing story behind the creation of some of the world's most beautiful contemporary cameo glass.
"It will prove to be some of the most respected and dominant art glass of the twentieth century . . . Besides the technical skill, besides the graphic design . . . vision is what sets Kelsey apart. Way apart."
Dean Six, Executive Director of the Museum of American Glass in WV
"Kelsey's artwork is beautiful. The details have a special level of artistry. She should have her own chapter in the history books because of the things she did at Pilgrim and here at Fenton."
George Fenton, CEO of Fenton Glass
"Her palette, motifs, and modeling set her glass apart from its historic precedents."
E. John Bullard, Director New Orleans Museum of Art
". . . the successful joining of the creative energies of the individual artist and the resources of the modern corporation."
John Webster Keefe, Curator of Decorative Arts, New Orleans Museum of Art
"Their glass is beautiful and I am proud to endorse it."
Christopher Woodall Perry, great-grandson of famed cameo artist George Woodall
