"Glass can be decorative or utilitarian, and its forms often reflect technological innovations and social change. Drawing on an insightful selection from the Yale University Art Gallery and other collections at Yale, American Glass illuminates the vital and often intimate roles that glass has played in the nation's art and culture. Spectacularly illustrated, the publication showcases eighteenth-century mold-blown vessels, nineteenth-century pressed glass, innovative studio work, and luminous stained-glass windows by John La Farge and Louis Comfort Tiffany, the latter reproduced as a lush gatefold. These are considered alongside beguiling objects that broaden our expectations of glass and speak to the centrality of the medium in American life, including one of the oldest complex microscopes in the United States, an early Edison light bulb, glass-plate photography, jewelry, and more. With an essay on the history of collecting American glass and discussions of each object that present new scholarship, this engaging book tells the long and rich history of glass in America--from prehistoric minerals to contemporary sculptures"--Dust jacket front flap.

Nestled in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago, Barrington offers a treasure-trove of fascinating history and area lore. Meet the passionate guardians of this bucolic landscape who embody the pioneering midwestern spirit. While the community maintains a proud tradition of civic improvement and conservation, its citizens ably represent Barrington in the national arena. The town’s record of military service and veteran care dates back to the Civil War. Floyd Bateman helped organize the 1933 World’s Fair, while Christine O’Malley won acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival for her crossword documentary. Three members of the 1985 Bears championship squad called the enclave home. Author Diane Kostick paints a portrait of those whose vision, resourcefulness and dedication contributed to the strength and character of this proud community.

Here is the first comprehensive survey of modern craft in the United States. Makers follows the development of studio craft--objects in fiber, clay, glass, wood, and metal--from its roots in nineteenth-century reform movements to the rich diversity of expression at the end of the twentieth century. More than four hundred illustrations complement this chronological exploration of the American craft tradition. Keeping as their main focus the objects and the makers, Janet Koplos and Bruce Metcalf offer a detailed analysis of seminal works and discussions of education, institutional support, and the philosophical underpinnings of craft. In a vivid and accessible narrative, they highlight the value of physical skill, examine craft as a force for moral reform, and consider the role of craft as an aesthetic alternative. Exploring craft's relationship to fine arts and design, Koplos and Metcalf foster a critical understanding of the field and help explain craft's place in contemporary culture. Makers will be an indispensable volume for craftspeople, curators, collectors, critics, historians, students, and anyone who is interested in American craft.

As part of a large oral history and survey project of the Research Center for Arts and Culture of Columbia University aimed at compiling information on craftspeople, ten informative and insightful narrative interviews were edited and collected for The Craftsperson Speaks. The artists represent a variety of disciplines and media and a balance of ethnicity, regionalism, and stage of career development. Each interview is prefaced by career data and followed by exhibit sources and honors, and a representative piece of work is illustrated. The volume's introduction offers an historic overview of American crafts, and a bibliography is included.
