Washington Glass School Artist in CMOG’s New Glass Review 31!


Since 1979, the Corning Museum of Glass has published its annual New Glass Review, which documents new work in glass art, architecture, craft, and design. New Glass Review is the only peer-reviewed journal in the field of contemporary glass.

Each year, artists around the world submit images of their recent work to the Museum. This year an international jury selected artwork submitted from 888 artists from over 43 countries – making a total of over 2,500 submissions for consideration. The jury included Jon Clark, Professor, Tyler School of Art; Rosa Barovier Mentasti, art historian, curator and critic, Venice, Italy; Zesty Meyers, owner, R20th Century, New York, and Tina Oldknow, Curator of Modern Glass, Corning Museum.

As of the time of publishing this post, some of the artists included in this years review are: Sara Gilbert, Bernd Kniel, Kait Rhoads, Masahiro Sasaki, Nancy Weisser, Jeff Zimmer and myself, Michael Janis. I am honored to be selected again this year for inclusion in the publication, due out in May, 2010.

‘New Glass Review’ features Washington Glass School artist


The Corning Museum of Glass hosts a yearly international review of glass in a publication from Germany called New Glass Review (Neues Glas).

This year’s judges included Rachel Berwick, Department Head of Glass, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, Rhode Island; Mieke Groot, independant curator, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Tina Oldknow, the Curator of Modern Glass for Corning Museum, Corning, New York; and Dante Marioni, glass superstar, Seattle, Washington.

A total of 1,047 artists from 43 countries sent 2,974 images of work for consideration. Of these 100 were selected for inclusion in New Glass Review 30, and I am thrilled to be one of those 100! The publication is due in May, and the images will be part of the Corning Museum’s Rakow Research Library.
