For thousands of years humans have adorned themselves. Adornment figures among the constellation of traits that signify the arrival of modern human behavior in the archaeological record - a key part of the cultural innovations that distinguish us from all our bipedal predecessors of the past several million years. Wherever they ventured, wherever they lived, modern people made art and adornments to accompany them in life and in death. In this book William Morris celebrates this ancient and universal human quality and continues his exploration of the themes of origin and myth that permeate all his work.

South Florida is home to some of the world's premier private collections of studio glass, collections whose abundance, diversity, and quality are celebrated in Fire and Form. This volume features more than 100 works by 31 of the best-known American and European glass artists of our time, including Jaroslava Brychtova, Dale Chihuly, Dan Dailey, Stanislav Libensky, William Morris, Tom Patti, Lino Tagliapietra, and many others. William Warmus identifies four prominent themes in the relatively recent development of studio glass (since 1960) that provide a framework for exploring the rich variety of works presented in this book. The first theme is what Warmus has called the particular affinity between nature and the making of glass: Where nature creates a heart, the glass artist creates a heart-felt vessel. The second is the ability of glass, equally to that of painting and sculpture, to convey the power of abstraction and color. A third theme is the prevalent use of glass - sometimes called the new bronze - to depict the human figure and animal forms. The final section deals with the theatrical nature of installations and environmental sculptures, demonstrating the surprising capability of glass to impose itself physically and emotionally on the space we inhabit, altering our very perception of it. ancient Egypt, and places contemporary glass within the context of contemporary art and theory at large. In addition, the book includes selected artists' bibliographies and a chronological bibliography of contemporary glass that lists key historical events, general trends and developments, and important publications. Fire and Form offers a unique perspective on this vital and intoxicating medium, and its publication is a welcome event for all lovers of glass - those who make it, those who collect it, and those who admire it.

The friendship between William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones began when they met as undergraduates in 1853 and—despite their differences in temperament and in attitudes to political engagement—lasted until Morris’s death in 1896. This friendship was one of the defining features of both their lives, and yet the overlap in their artistic projects has not previously been considered in detail. In this deeply thoughtful book, Caroline Arscott explores particular aspects of the paintings of Burne-Jones and the designs of Morris and concludes that there are close interconnections in theme, allusion, and formal strategy between the works of the two men. She suggests that themes of bodily pain, desire and appetite are central to their vision. Through careful readings of Burne-Jones’s painting and Morris’s designs for printed wallpapers and textiles, she shows that it is possible to bring together fine art and design in a linked discussion that illuminates the projects of both artists.
