A feast for the eyes. I liked the format of previewing artists and showing a lot of their work.Very well laid out. This is a great book to have as a coffee table book.If you are looking for techniques though, this is not the book for you.

While I enjoyed reading about some of the artists we collect and being introduced to new ones, several of the most famous were left out including Chihuly.

This beautifully priced soft cover book is a visual joy and an intelligent look at contemporary glass masters. It's a perfect gift for the collector or the appreciator who just wants to know more.

Anyone with any interest in glass as an art medium should own this book. It features major works by major artists and is not overly curatorial.

A look into the most sought after glass artists. It was interesting and informative.
