Book Summary

Paperback • 9.5 x 13 • 128 pages • Full Color throughout

This beautifully photographed full-color book showcases some of the best of contemporary art and architectural glass, including works by Dale Chihuly, Rick Beck and many other internationally-regarded glass artists.

In 2003 an international gathering of glass artists, aficionados and collectors descended on Louisville, Kentucky to participate in "A Celebration of Glass," a four month long exploration of the full artistic expression of glass. The centerpieces of the event were five major exhibitions, including:

  • Dale Chihuly's Baskets and New Works,
  • an international survey of architectural glass art,
  • an international glass vessel invitational,
  • Rick Beck's Sculpture exhibit, and
  • an exhibition of glass from Louisville collections.

This book is an examination of those five impressive exhibitions. Its stunning photography and comprehensive nature both illuminate and exalt the genre.
