Summary: From the first glass pâte de verre works at the end of the nineteenth century up to the recent sculptural creations, the human body has inspired many glass artists. Using a host of techniques such as blowing, moulding, enamelling and incising, the body can be represented in a figurative, abstract or fragmented manner; it can suggest movement, the passage of time, or desire; it can represent a style or an era. Through selected works from 1880 up until 2015 by sixty international artists, this catalogue accompanies the exhibition in our Conches Glass Museum to invite you to discover how the human body can be represented in glass arts.
