Glass is a unique material for sculpture because no other medium has its ability to change colour, texture, and, seemingly, mass. Contemporary Glass Sculptures and Panels presents the work of 68 artists in the collection of The Corning Museum of Glass; what this diverse group of established and emerging artists share is an experimental approach to glass that transcends the material's traditional association with the decorative arts. Through their investigations of material and ideas, they have encouraged the development of glass-throughout the late twentieth century and into the early years of the twenty-first century-as a medium for sculpture and painting. This generously illustrated volume features the work of a range of international artists, including Larry Bell, Howard Ben Tre, Dale Chihuly, Vaclav Cigler, Brian Clarke, Jun Kaneko, and Robert Rauschenberg.
