Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass

The expertise of Native glass artists, in combination with the stories of their cultures, has produced a remarkable new artistic genre. This flowering of glass art in Indian Country is the result of the coming together of two movements that began in the 1960s―the contemporary Native arts movement, championed by Lloyd Kiva New, and the studio glass art movement, founded by American glass artists such as Dale Chihuly, who started several early teaching programs. Taken together, these two movements created a new dimension of cultural and artistic expression. The glass art created by American Indian artists is not only a personal expression but also imbued with cultural heritage.

This comprehensive look at this new genre of art includes multiple photographs of the impressive works of each artist.

Clearly Indigenous A Must See

My husband and I saw the exhibit and were very impressed not only by the skill of the artists but by the deep spirituality of each piece. Without our experience of the visit and this book, we would never have appreciated the artistry and talents of these truly gifted people.. The ability to transform traditional art into this form was truly amazing. We were on a tour with Road Scholar and would not have experienced this exhibit if not for them. We have talked about this exhibit with others and shown them the beautifully photographed book. .

Extraordinary Publication

The combination of image production, textual style, aesthetic presentation is quite excellent. The book is truly a major contribution to cultural presentation and preservation, especially for those of us who have not yet seen the actual items represented.
