WorldArt Glass.Com - The Evolution
Author: William Geary
The information directory has evolved into a one stop resource for data on most aspects of historic and contemporary art glass. We currently have over 2700 sites listed for the visitor to review. There are currently over 700 visitors to the site on a daily basis with more and more visitors coming to our location from around the world.
The world of art glass is composed of many elements related to designing, creating, marketing, selling, displaying, collecting and reselling glass forms in this wonderful art medium. We continuously search for new and interesting sites pertaining to this wonderful medium.
Our organization is composed of four individuals who have a passion for art glass in its many forms. We have written a book about art glass, been a certified appraiser of glass, presented speeches on American and Swedish art glass, acted as a retailer of art and functional glass, managed major crystal work´s galleries in New York and Sweden, promoted art glass from the Nordic region and have collected all forms of art glass.
Our love of art glass and the many ways it has been used throughout history sent us to the internet. There were high hopes of discovering new and untapped resources to further enhance our appreciation and knowledge of art glass. We hoped there would be one website directory pointing us in the right direction to find art glass, glass artists, dealers, museums, etc.
We searched for the one site where most aspects of historic and contemporary art glass could be located without having to go through an unusual number of searches. Since this type of site could not be found, we decided to create www. worldartglass.com The focus is to present a compact list of sites for use by collectors, glass students, designers, artisans, artists, educators, gallery owners, dealers, museum directors, authors and travelers and tourists.
The site has evolved to contain the following categories with a total of over 2700 specific sites.
