Japanese Glass Art Exhibit Showcases Intriguing Creations

With all that is happening with "Pittsburgh Celebrates Glass!" there's been a lot of talk about the American studio glass movement lately.

But a quiet little exhibition on display at the Pittsburgh Glass Center in Friendship that is part of the celebration hints that the glass movement is a global phenomenon, particularly as it relates to Japan.

Since the launch of the Studio Glass Movement in the United States 30 years ago, there now exist more than 25 schools offering glass programs in Japan. Thus, today there are glass artists working all over that country.

"Allure of Japanese Glass" presents works by 17 established and emerging Japanese glass artists who work in a full range of glass art methods and techniques.
