From the frontlines of the American Studio Glass Movement to the renowned studios of Cristallerie Daum, the Fenton Art Glass Company, Waterford Crystal, Herman Miller, and Steuben Glass, Dan Dailey’s glasswork has been in the public eye for the past four decades. Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive look at his beautiful—and playful—oeuvre.
Like his colleagues and predecessors Harvey Littleton and Dale Chihuly, Dailey’s work has been met with critical and popular acclaim at home as well as abroad, and collected by nearly fifty museums on three continents. His vibrant, humorous pieces draw upon his background in cartooning and training in nearly every glass technique, as well as a proficiency in metalwork—a blend of antic and innovation that continually pushes the medium forward. With a foreword by graphic designer Milton Glaser, an interview with the artist by Corning Museum curator Tina Oldknow, and an essay by William Warmus, this collection of over 400 works is an essential addition to any library.

William Warmus is a former curator of The Corning Museum of Glass, a past editor of Glass magazine, and the author of books on many artists. He lives near Ithaca, New York.From Publishers Weekly:
Starred Review. This lavishly illustrated volume honors the art of a master glass maker. Dailey has created a huge body of work, including lamps, vases, mosaics, tables, wall reliefs, free-standing sculptures and monumental structures such as the two-ton cast-glass relief mural in the Rainbow Room in New York City. The photos attest to his technical mastery as well as to the inventiveness of his designs, which incorporate everything from human and animal characters to skyscrapers, mythological figures and musical instruments, in a recent series on jazz that is both abstract and representational. Some of the whimsical drawings on which Dailey bases his work are included, showing his superb draftsmanship and his preoccupation with the vagaries of human nature. Noted graphic designer Glaser pays tribute to the artist as the head of a dynamic glassmaking studio. Warmus, former curator of the Corning Museum of Glass, gives an overview of Dailey's career. Oldknow, the Corning Museum's curator of modern glass, talks with Dailey about his relationship to art of the past, his subject matter, and his training in glass factories in Italy and France. Photos of Dailey and his assistants as well as supplemental material about his career round out this visually stunning coffee-table book. (Oct.)
