This book considers one of the liveliest areas of the decorative arts to emerge during the second half of the twentieth century. The new approaches to glassmaking that evolved during the 1960s liberated glassmaking from the factory and placed it in the hands of individual glassmakers. The result has been a glassmaking movement that has produced colourful, innovative and exciting work. Concentrating on the British context, this book provides an introduction to the work of significant contemporary makers along with the themes and ideas that have shaped their work. About the authorDr Graham McLaren teaches the history of ceramics and glass at Staffordshire University, Stoke-on-Trent. He leads the unique MA in the History of Ceramics, taught in conjunction with the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, Hanley.
