25 Years of New Glass Review
By Tina Oldknow
Each issue of New Glass Review, an annual publication of The Corning Museum of Glass, documents the works of 100 artists, who are selected by a jury from about 900 artist submissions. This book presents 200 photographs of contemporary glass that originally appeared in New Glass Review from 1980 to 2004. It is not, author Tina Oldknow writes, "about what or who is best in glass. It is about what I think has been significant in the field and who I think has made an important contribution to it."
Oldknow, formerly the Museum's curator of modern glass and a longtime juror for the New Glass Review, re-examined the 2,500 works published during the Review's first quarter-century. The works she presents here emphasize "the excellence of the idea or function, as well as the high quality of the aesthetic or technique."
The book includes a foreword by Thomas S. Buechner, the Corning Museum's first director and the founder of New Glass Review, and an alphabetical listing of the artists and the countries they represent.
