Contemporary Glass from
The Glass Encyclopedia

A short explanation of Contemporary Glass:
Contemporary Glass is glass both designed and made in very recent years and still being made (unless the artist has recently died). It is also the name used for Studio Glass, that is glass made by the master glass artist him or herself, usually in a small studio workshop.

The studio glass movement began in the late 1950's, with artists in France, Czechoslovakia, and the USA starting to make their own glass pieces rather than designers making designs for factory production. The Corning Glass Museum's first international glass exhibition, "Glass 59", had nine glass factories exhibiting, whereas in their "New Glass" exhibition in 1979 there was only one (Pilgrim Glass), and attention had switched entirely to glass as an art form created by individual artists rather than a factory product.

Over the past three decades there have been dramatic developments in glass design and the innovative and creative techniques needed to form these designs.

Market Intelligence Page

Glass-Seek.com is a page you can use in several interesting ways, so we hope you will explore and enjoy it.


1: Collectors Search - have a look at the kind of glass you sometimes buy, either because you are a collectors or a dealer. Its always interesting to see what others are selling and you might find that piece you have been looking for, or maybe come across a real bargain.

2: Market Intelligence The items and prices asked in on-line auctions give you an overview of the market. What items are selling well, and for what prices? You can identify trends, learn how the best sellers present their items for sale, and recognise the kinds of items that are in scarce supply or good value.

3: Relax and enjoy Another way to use this page is to imagine it is your personal studio of beautiful glass, where you can wander and admire some amazing creations. And every time you visit there may be new things you have not seen. These are my personal favourites, way beyond my means but I can still dream: Galle, Tiffany Favrile, Thomas Webb, Paul Stankard, Victor Trabucco, Galle, Venini.

I do hope you enjoy our Market Intelligence Page (click here).
