Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The "voices" of the title include Oldknow's (modern glass curator, Corning Museum; Contemporary Glass Sculptures and Panels), who presents a thoughtful introductory chapter about the formation of this 240-piece collection, and that of journalist and daughter-in-law of the Heinemans Cristine Russell, who contributes insights about the donors. Voices of various curators and historians appear in quotations in the main section of the book—an alphabetical grouping of the 87 international glass artists and their works (dating from 1969 to 2005). Most revealing are thoughts from the artists about their guiding philosophies. This Corning Museum of Glass exhibition catalog also includes a photograph of each artist (often in the process of creation); biographical information; stunning color photographs of the individual glass sculptures and vessels; and photographs of the Heinemans' home, documenting the objects as originally displayed. VERDICT This is certainly a scholarly work for students and art historians. But anyone who loves glass art (like the enchanting Chihuly sculptures displayed across the country in public spaces) should enjoy learning about its infinite color, form, and expressive possibilities.—Anne Marie Lane, Univ. of Wyoming, Laramie
