The tremendous variety and beauty of studio-glass work is reflected in this juried collection of both functional and sculptural objects. These striking and gorgeous works feature the remarkable design aesthetic and craftsmanship of contemporary artists from around the world. Whether you're a creator, collector, or enthusiast of glasswork, this remarkable showcase will delight, inform, and inspire you.

Studio glass has firmly established as a fine art medium in only the last 40 years; however it is now embraced as such around the world, supported by private and corporate collectors, and exhibited in galleries and museums world-wide. This striking and provocative monograph presents work from an international panel of both emerging and established artists selected by Maurine Littleton, a distinguished presence in the field.

A number of the juried works display remarkable patterning, such as Robert Wiener's "Summer Salsa" made up of approximately 700 hand-cut murrine, eight colors of glass, and 60 color combinations.

Others express considerable character. Victor Chiarizia's sculptures reveal different stories. "I journey to a place where dark passages lead to splendid beauty." "Choosing the Path" reflects his interest in blurring the lines between nature, humankind, and fantasy.

Several artists interpret familiar objects in glass, compelling the viewer to look at them in a new way. Susan Taylor Glasgow, for example writes of "Don't Forget, Pinkies Out Coffee Pot," " I enjoy using the domestic art of sewing to explore the complex expectations of women within the household."

Some of the glass objects reference specific artists or decorative styles. The influence of Art Nouveau can be seen in Beth Hylen's "Branches." This wearable sculpture, a velvet dress, is enhanced with sinuous Art Nouveau lines, tree branches, and icicles formed in glass.

500 Glass Objects is an opportunity to view unique pieces distinguished by brilliant workmanship, color and light.
