Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Imaginative, colorful, whimsical, and eclectic images grace the pages of this exciting book. Contributor Susan Rossi-Wilcox (editor, Journal of the Glass Art Society) and Hemachandra, who has edited many Lark books, provide a brief introduction to the world of blown glass and share the magical creations of 42 of the most dynamic master glass artisans from across the United States. Along with short synopses of the artists' background, training, and accomplishments, the book pictures their exquisite objects and works showcasing cut, etched, engraved, carved, and sandblasted techniques, to name a few. Via the spectacular photographs, the reader can become immersed in the iconic works of William Morris, the imaginative objects of Robert Carlson, the haunting creations of Peter Houk, and the mesmerizing sculptural qualities of Josh Simpson and Kait Rhoads, among others. VERDICT This outstanding work should appeal to anyone who has a personal interest in blown-glass creations; especially recommended for all types of libraries with strong collections in design and decorative arts.—Stephen Allan Patrick, Jonesborough, TN
