This book is the definitive resource on Mary Shaffer's art and life--from her start as a single mother in the '70s to her rise as a renowned master of glass art today. She pioneered a technique, which layers gravity and organic forms to create flowing shapes from glass. Packed with stunning photographs of her iconic slumped and cast glass art, outdoor sculptures, installations, and commissioned pieces, the book offers a rare insight into figures, moments, and developments within the studio glass art movement. Contributions from notable figures Jane Adlin, Lucy R. Lippard, and William Warmus further explore her creative philosophy and impact in dissolving binaries.
