The Winter 2023 edition of Glass (#173), with a major glass-art project at Apple HQ on the cover, is overflowing with extras

The upcoming Winter 2023 edition of Glass (#173), will arrive bundled with Corning's New Glass Review #43. It will also include our fully updated 2024 guide to glass education and suppliers to the field. These bonuses are included at no extra charge to subscribers, though there will be a slightly higher cover price if purchased on the newsstand.

The new issue hits newsstands on December 1, 2023 (earlier to digital subscribers), and will feature on its cover an in-depth look at the expansive new glass sculpture Apple unveiled outside its Cupertino, California, headquarters. Glass contributing editor Emma Park spoke to the artists, designers, fabricators, and others to get a closer look at the more than 450 columns of clear glass, within which desert sands from around the world were embedded.

New Glass Review #43 was guest edited by Glass contributing editor Samantha De Tillio, who also concludes her three-part series examining the history of glass performance with a look at contemporary practices as well as future directions.

Also in this issue is one of the first efforts to document the phenomenon of indigenous artists working with glass. Contributing editor John Drury, who was moved by Navajo artist Tony Jojola's untimely passing in December 2022 to organize an exhibition of Native art at Seattle's Traver Gallery, conducted an oral history, interviewing Larry Ahvakana, Dan Friday, Preston Singletary, and Raven Skyriver, to begin to weave together various historical threads.

A special feature for our Winter edition is our fully-updated guide to glass education, with an international listing of degree-granting and non-degree programs, as well as the key suppliers to the glass art world.

Don't miss out on this special bundled edition.
