|The Chronology and
Bibliography of Studio Glass
by William Warmus and Beth Hylen
I hope that this is the most
credible and detailed selected bibliography of studio glass on the web. If you
use it, please cite the link as www.warmus.org
It was first published in my book Fire and Form, published by the Norton Museum of Art in 2003, and I am grateful that they have let me use it here. If you know of a more complete bibliography, e-mail me and I'll trade a link to it (at firstname.lastname@example.org).
For individual artist entries, scroll down to bottom of main bibliography. This list is far from complete and we hope to expand it over time.
|Last update: 7-27-03 (this chronology is a
work in progress). We invite comments, corrections,
additions: please e-mail at email@example.com.
Please be aware that we publish excerpts from e-mails in this bibliography.
Keep them precise, concise and to the point.
The bibliography updates once or twice a year. For essays about individual studio glass artists (Littleton, Chihuly, Dailey, Tagliapietra, etc.) see the page at: Essays
Bibliography complied by Beth Hylen (with ongoing Warmus additions), chronology by Warmus and Hylen.
Books and journals are arranged by year, along with selected historical events. Chronological notes are provided to help orient the nonspecialist reader and have been chosen to complement the essay and place the artworks in this book in greater context.
The history of contemporary glass is discussed thoroughly in many of the books listed below. This chronological bibliography does not attempt to repeat their stories; instead, it provides a brief overview of larger trends and a selection of key events and details. It has been edited and interpreted to fit the limited space available.
Readers are referred to the Checklist in New Glass Review for a more complete overview of the period. Another useful resource is the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass Web site, <www.contempglass.org/index.html>, which provides information about local contemporary glass collectors’ groups and a calendar of exhibitions, as well as links to artists, galleries and museums, organizations, publications, schools, and more.

Studio glass survey exhibitions and galleries devoted to glass begin to appear.
The studio movement creates a new industry for glassmaking-related products. Equipment, tools, and materials become increasingly available to studio artists (Kugler color rods, Norstar borosilicate colors, new furnace designs). Changes in glass composition from 475 marbles in the early 1960s to clear Coke bottles used by schools in the 1970s to West Virginia glass companies selling artists their cullet and, finally, batch companies, such as Littleton Batch Co., making glass specifically for studio glass artists.
Paoli Clay Co. is among the first to sell glassmaker’s tools in the United States; previously tools were imported from Germany.
Explosion of glass schools and studios in the 1970s and 1980s paves the way for a new industry of glass tools and equipment.

“Craft vs. art” debate heats up.
Glass Art Society places technical articles in a separately bound journal.
Move toward professionalism; artists concentrate on the business of running a studio and developing marketing strategies to create a stable livelihood.
Production of technically assured, confident works.
Greater interest in content, using glass as a contemporary sculpture medium.
Collectors build collections based less on investment value and more on the inherent worth of the artworks. Camaraderie of collectors and friendly competition for the most beautiful artworks lead to a relatively stable market and the development of a glass community.
Use of glass as a fine-art medium.
Reaction against the “beauty” of glass.
Auctions of contemporary glass begin at Sotheby’s and Christie’s.
Glass Weekend begins at Wheaton Village, Millville, New Jersey. The biennial seminar brings together leading contemporary glass artists, collectors, galleries, and museum curators.

Glass Focus, no. 1, 1987–. Published by Beverly M. Copeland & Associates.
[Notes: In Fire and Form, the publisher of Glass Focus was identified as the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass (AACG). After research, we have changed the publisher as above. We have the following information from an August 19, 2003 e-mail from the publisher, Beverly Copeland:
"I have all the original copies of GF
since I began it in Feb, 1987.
Beverly M. Copeland started publishing a glass-related newsletter in February, 1987. It was called the North Shore Studio Art Glass Newsletter because it began life as a local periodical for Chicago's North Shore area. The first issue was two pages. Issues were published in April and June, and by August, 1987, the issue was 12 pages, and contained more national than local news.
With the October, 1987 issue and a more national focus, I changed the name of my publication to Glass Focus.
Also, in the fall of 1987, I was approached by Madeline Baer, a founding member of the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass to ask if I would supply their members with Glass Focus. The sixth issue of what had become a bimonthly periodical was published in December, 1987.
The February, 1988 issue of Glass Focus was the first issue to have below the name Glass focus on the masthead "in association with the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass."]
