This is the first English-language volume on Maurice Marinot (1882-1960), a pioneer in the development of glass as a studio art form.

Initially a member of the fauves, in 1911 Marinot visited the glassworks of the Viard brothers at Bar-sur-Seine, a catalytic moment that led to an all-encompassing passion for glass. Marinot quickly began designing bowls, vases and bottles, which his friends would produce for him to paint, using enamels.

By 1913 critics were praising his work: "It has been a long time since an innovation of such great importance has come to enrich the art of glass," wrote Leon Rosenthal. From that year Marinot ceased exhibiting his paintings and learned quickly how to blow glass. In 1923 he stopped using enamels, and explored the use of bubbles, metal leaf and colored glass. This book reveals his accomplishment for a wider audience.
