A Short History of Glass—(Permanent Collection Gallery)
Trial by Fire-Contemporary Studio Glass (Upper Level)—Transparent and transulent sculpture with dazzling color and cool attitude. With glass an artist may consider what very few other sculpture materials allow: the relationship of outer surface to inner volume, to the inner suspension of color or form. Viewers peer into the core of a transparent artwork, or attention is demanded by surfaces that are beveled, faceted, polished, chipped, electroform plated, or altered in innumerable ways. Only the imagination and the melting point limit creativity. [Catalogue]
