Just out this month from UK publisher Black Dog, Contemporary Glass features 60 glass artists, ranging from the obvious choices (Kiki Smith, Dale Chihuly) to a diverse selection of artists, including Mark Zirpel, Olafur Eliasson, Tobias Rehberger and Beth Lipman. I am pleased to be included in the mix, with a smart write-up that makes a connection between my work to Cai Guo Quiang’s gunpowder installations.
The editor, Blanche Craig, writes” “The glass artists featured… continually challenge definitions of the medium and how it can be used. They deploy glass to reassert its position as one of the most exciting mediums today, exploit preconceptions and make works that seemingly defy categorization. As such, they provide not only new parameters within which to consider glass today, but have also set out a framework that future practitioners can engage with.”
