Monica Guggisberg and Philip Baldwin met in 1979 as apprentices at the Orrefors glass factory in Sweden. Since then, the Swiss Guggisberg and American Baldwin have forged an intense partnership, resulting in a unique and unmistakable style that combines pure design and Scandinavian-inspired techniques together with the Venetian cold-working process battuto. From tableware to sculptural and monumental installations, including blown and cut pieces created for such esteemed glass manufacturers as Venini, Rosenthal, and Steuben, the work of Guggisberg and Baldwin is truly captivating. Vases are decorated with geometric wheel–engraved patterns; glass spheres become mobiles or sparkling, brightly colored installations; and groups of oblong, almost organically shaped sculptures celebrate the incredible elasticity of glass. This new book presents the full scope of their work in lush illustrations.

Tina Oldknow is head curator of the modern and contemporary glass collections at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. James Yood teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Isabelle Naef-Galuba is the director of the Ariana Museum, Swiss Museum of Ceramics and Glass, Geneva.
