Overview

From the frontlines of the American Studio Glass Movement to the renowned studios of Cristallerie Daum, the Fenton Art Glass Company, Waterford Crystal, Herman Miller, and Steuben Glass, Dan Dailey's glasswork has been in the public eye for the past four decades. Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive look at his beautiful-and playful-oeuvre.

Like his colleagues and predecessors Harvey Littleton and Dale Chihuly, Dailey's work has been met with critical and popular acclaim at home as well as abroad, and collected by nearly fifty museums on three continents. His vibrant, humorous pieces draw upon his background in cartooning and training in nearly every glass technique, as well as a proficiency in metalwork-a blend of antic and innovation that continually pushes the medium forward. With a foreword by graphic designer Milton Glaser, an interview with the artist by Corning Museum curator Tina Oldknow, and an essay by William Warmus, this collection of over 400 works is an essential addition to any library.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This lavishly illustrated volume honors the art of a master glass maker. Dailey has created a huge body of work, including lamps, vases, mosaics, tables, wall reliefs, free-standing sculptures and monumental structures such as the two-ton cast-glass relief mural in the Rainbow Room in New York City. The photos attest to his technical mastery as well as to the inventiveness of his designs, which incorporate everything from human and animal characters to skyscrapers, mythological figures and musical instruments, in a recent series on jazz that is both abstract and representational. Some of the whimsical drawings on which Dailey bases his work are included, showing his superb draftsmanship and his preoccupation with the vagaries of human nature. Noted graphic designer Glaser pays tribute to the artist as the head of a dynamic glassmaking studio. Warmus, former curator of the Corning Museum of Glass, gives an overview of Dailey's career. Oldknow, the Corning Museum's curator of modern glass, talks with Dailey about his relationship to art of the past, his subject matter, and his training in glass factories in Italy and France. Photos of Dailey and his assistants as well as supplemental material about his career round out this visually stunning coffee-table book. (Oct.)

Library Journal

Dynamicand spectacularbest describe this exquisitely illustrated work of American master glassmaker and artist extraordinaire Dan Dailey. The wide range and diverse three-dimensional creations of imaginative vases, vessels, conversations, wall reliefs, lamps, tables, and murals are displayed in their full glory. Dailey's themes focus on both figural and sculptural realism and depict human and animal characterizations influenced from ancient art to art deco and modernism. The conversation with Tina Oldknow (curator of modern glass, Corning Museum, NY) focuses on the insights of Dailey's inspiration and visual poetic qualities along with his personal emotions from irony and cynicism to the humorous and whimsical. The vast portion of the volume includes notable examples of the glassworks spanning Dailey's career from the 1970s to the present. The book concludes with a few personal remarks of the artist, an extensive biographical chronology, a list of articles and writings, commissioned works, and an index to the works included in the volume. A delightful and colorful survey, this should be a useful addition to public and academic libraries focusing on modern and decorative arts. Highly recommended.
