The Glass Reader, Bloomsbury Visual Arts
My essay Glass in the Expanded Field is about to be published in the forthcoming The Glass Reader, published by Bloomsbury Visual Arts.
The Glass Reader is a comprehensive anthology of writing on glass. The Reader brings together foundational writings by key scholars such as David Pye, Glenn Adamson and Richard Sennett and newly-commissioned essays to address glass as a material and practice in art, craft, design and architecture, as well as central critical issues such as technology, gender and sustainability. This carefully-curated selection of texts, from academic sources and journalism as newly commissioned material, is grouped into thematic sections, each with a contextualising introduction by the editors. There is also a comprehensive bibliography to facilitate further reading and research. This book is ideal for arts students, but will also appeal to anyone wishing to gain a broad overview and understanding of the world of glass.
The Glass Reader is edited by Prof Kevin Petrie and Jeffrey Sarmiento.
