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 rather than a craft.

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

INFORMATION about the Pirelli-Vasart Link!
Angela's new book on Pirelli Glass has a whole chapter on the links between Pirelli Glass and the Ysart family, in particular with Vasart glass. Pirelli formed a partnership with Vasart and used their paperweights in all kinds of items from door handles to automatic cork-screws. Whilst Paul Ysart was working at Caithness his brother Vincent was collaborating with Pirelli.
