CGS Members discount for December

Alan J Poole has offered CGS members this very generous discount for a wonderful book. Its a perfect Christmas present for a glassy friend or even yourself if you haven't already got a copy.

''Artists In Glass: Late Twentieth Century Masters In Glass': A book which Alan J Poole and his late partner, Dan Klein produced back in 2001, but which is still very much relevant today given that many of the International Glass Artists included in this professionally published edition are still very visible and part of the Contemporary Glass scene.

Many of the Artists will be known to C.G.S. Members, both professionally and socially such as 'Baldwin & Guggisberg' (Philip Baldwin & Monica Guggisberg), Anna Dickinson, Mieke Groot, Alison Kinnaird M.B.E., Danny Lane, Dante Marioni, Richard Marquis, Richard Meitner, Pala & Palová, David Reekie, Colin Reid, Paul Stankard, Bertil Vallien, and of course, Lino Tagliapietra & Dale Chihuly. In all, a list of some 80 or more Artists are featured, all expertly covered by Dan Klein, and also including a glossary of glass techniques and surface decorations, and uniquely, sample signatures and marks used by the Artists on their work.

There is something for everyone here, both practicing Artists, Students currently undertaking glass courses, Collector/Buyers wanting to know a little more or just for those who want to admire the stunningly photographed works of some of the biggest names of the time.

The cost is £10.00 for C.G.S. Members plus P&P ( normal retail price £25 )

Payment: BACS on request or a cheque made payable to 'Alan J. Poole',
43 Hugh Street, London. SW1V 1QJ.
