Product Description

      Strikingly illustrated, American Studio Glass 1960-1990 is the first to explore the results of this question, revealing both the early history of the movement and the clash of ambitions and power that marked the relationship between the worlds of so-called crafts and high art. Martha Drexler Lynn's precise analysis of the philosophical and circumstantial factors that shaped studio glass, the state of glassmaking practice before the proto-studio glassmakers, and the emergence of pioneering artisans creates a living picture of the movement's struggle for respect and acceptance in America. In the fifteen years between 1975 and 1990, the patronage for American studio glass expanded exponentially, and that interest continues today. American Studio Glass catalogues this evolution with vivid photographs and a comprehensive interpretation of a uniquely beautiful art form. Martha Drexler Lynn received her Ph.D. in art history from the University of Southern California and is a former associate curator in the Decorative Arts Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
