Foreword by Bruce Robertson

Essay by Howard N. Fox

For more than three millennia glass has been an essential aspect of material and visual culture. Its remarkable physical properties result in a medium of boundless utilitarian purpose and remarkable aesthetic expression. Glass: Material Matters (the catalogue of an exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art) is unique in exploring the artistic use of glass across a diverse range of decorative objects, sculpture, conceptual art, and architecture in a single volume. Highlighting a dazzling range of virtuoso technique and bravura formal innovation, this book challenges the distinctions that historians, critics, and curators have traditionally imposed to segregate the diverse artistic pursuits that are unified in their preoccupation with glass.
