Drawing on interviews with 126 participants associated with the Pilchuck Glass School (in Washington State) during its 25-year history, the author documents its development and growth from a makeshift workshop of tents and treehouses to a comprehensive center for artists working in glass. The narrative is enhanced with an abundance of photos showing the location, the people, and the wide variety of glass art created there. This institutional history carefully written and attractively designed holds interest for a much wider audience than most such histories owing to the uniqueness of the place and to growing interest in glass art. 9.5x12.5" Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Pilchuck Glass School sits on 54 acres of isolated forest in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. When artist Dale Chihuly held the first summer workshop on the site in 1971, with the support of Seattle art patrons Anne Gould Hauberg and John Hauberg, he gave little thought to establishing an ongoing program. In this exhaustive history, author Tina Oldknow traces the remarkable evolution of the school from a makeshift workshop of tents and treehouses to the most comprehensive center in the world for artists working in glass.
