Glass vessels have been ever-present in our lives for centuries and it is hard to picture a world without them. They hold our wine and water, beautifully display flowers, are essential containers for food and perfume, and distill scientific concoctions.

These four artists are part of the continuum of glass artists and designers who express ideas using vessel forms – be it in glass or other materials. It is through the practiced manipulation of material, intense heat and breath; they create and control volume to shape and design. The vessel is a touchstone glass artists return to repeatedly to examine and explore conceptually. They create works at the intersection of craft, technology, design and art using the particular qualities of materials to investigate perceptions of form and volume.
