Clicking each image will lead to detailed information on the piece.
Two votes per household. As a gift, the voters will receive the 52 page catalogue on The ABC of Glass Art, valued at $20

The main purpose of the exhibit is to demonstrate the spectrum of Glass Art Techniques, literal reproduction of a Letter should not be a significant judging criterion. You will come across highlights from our 1998 exhibit, The ABC of American Glass. Those are not meant to be part of the current voting

Another vote will be for the Mostly Glass 2005 Awards, offered to 3 Artists chosen by a Jury of Connoisseurs in Glass Art. The Jurors include Art Critics, Gallery Owners, Glass Art Collectors and non-participating Glass Artists.

All winners will be announced on the Web, just before the opening of Glass Weekend, July 15, 2005

The ABC of American Glass, 1998

It opened in our Englewood Gallery December 3 1998

Mostly Glass  invited forty Artists to demonstrate the wide spectrum of Art Glass Techniques through sculptures of the letters of the Alphabet. The Alphabet was rendered in other Art Forms, but this will be the first time that all the Letters will be shown in Art Glass and exhibited in one space.

The Artists are from across the United States and represent the young, emerging and the mature one. The techniques demonstrated will be predominantly the well-established Art of Blowing, Lamp working, Casting and Fusing glass. Stained Glass will be represented in its sculptural form, rather than in its traditional 2 dimensions. In addition, few Artists will demonstrate the use of Neon and Holograms in Art Glass.

Artists have chosen one or more Letters and a particular Letter will be made by more than one artist. There will be a total of 70 Letters / Sculptures. These will be limited editions of 5 (with or without an Artist’s Proof).

The Mostly Glass 1998 Award were offered to the Artists listed below.
The judges included Art Critics, Glass Collectors and non-participating Glass Artists.

Award #1 was shared by Robert Mickelsen (
