Colorful book on young Danish glass artist Steffen Dam. His pieces are beautifully crafted and very unique. He finds great inspiration in nature: Like puddles of water, the stars in the night, ocean waves, fish and insects. He is originally a toolmaker, and is a master of the technicalities of this art like an engineer. Any collector of fine contemporary glass should consider his art pieces.

In this inspiring book, Danish glass artist Lyngaard follows the master in his daily work at home and abroad, documenting his work processes and other activities.

After meeting at the Chicago Institute of Design in 1947 (and marrying the following year), Frances and Michael Higgins embarked on a career as pioneers in the creation of American art glass, executing laminated, fused and enameled pieces using their own special techniques. This catalogue, which accompanied an exhibition at the Fifty/50 Gallery in 1986, focuses on the unique experimental pieces produced by the pair between 1948 and 1958 including glass that is interwoven with copper wire, chips of glass fused into crystalline forms and intricate multilayered panels.

Unique among Swedish designers and artists, Ulrica Hydman Vallien - whose glass designs are synonymous with the huge commercial success of Kosta Boda - has made her supremely personal style her trademark. This monograph shows a master artist, now in her seventies, who has always had one foot in product design, and one in fine art. She has been creating vigorous, color-soaked images and symbols, full of whimsy and inspiration, for half a century now. In the bright pages of A Paradise Attack, we step into the artist's idiosyncratic pictorial world through the medium of ceramics, painting and glass.
