Our Story

The Contemporary Studio Glass Movement turns “57” this year (2019), over a haIf century, that is quite a milestone. Habatat, being the oldest gallery to exhibit Contemporary Glass (1971), we have been privileged to share in its rise from “glass can't be art” to its acceptance as a fine art today. This journey, while it may have been exciting, wasn't easy. During the sixties and early seventies the artists were pretty much consumed with working out technical difficulties and developing their own processes and techniques.

For every artist there is a story, a struggle and a victory – usually with each new body of work. Of course, the end results are not all victories, but even the failures can lead to new beginnings. Taking risks and not being afraid to fail is what separates the good artists.

The early artists that were attracted to glass were already a bit of a rebel on the art scene. This was the 60's and 70's, artists were beginning to explore alternative mediums for self-expression such as; photography, clay, fiber, metal and glass. When this new exciting opportunity appeared to work with glass, many of the artists from other areas jumped into the “unknown”, and it changed their lives.

During the early years the most accessible method of working with glass was “blowing.” Our first “Glass Invitational Exhibition” in 1972 was comprised of twelve artists all working in blown glass, with a price range of $50 - $100 dollars. The mid to late 70's gave rise to more experimentation with casting and laminating processes. More and more ways of working with glass were being explored. Artists found an expanded freedom of expression and scale once they began combining differing processes and materials. Large-sca|e works in glass will always remain a challenge because of weight and technical limitations. As the scale increases, the difficulties in working with material compound. Glass will never be an easy medium to work in – it is costly, technically a pain and doesn't always do what you want it to do. But, there is an amazing positive energy about it, and whether you are an artist or collector, it draws you in and adds to your life.
