This book brings together the recollections and achievements of postgraduate students of the glass department at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London (part of the University of the Arts London) during the 25 years prior to the course closure in 2011, after 115 years of continuous activity. The book is a tribute to all the students and staff and a record of the considerable achievements of so many alumni and tutors from ‘Central’ in the world of glass art. Students on the course were taught over the years by Patrick Reyntiens OBE, Professor Amal Ghosh, Adelle Corrin, Caroline Swash, Helen Maurer and Hildegard Pax alongside many visiting artists and practitioners.

The book presents the rich and varied work in glass by over 110 alumni in highly illustrated and inspirational entries on 204 pages, showing finished project work ranging from architectural glass projects to sculpture, from art installations to functional glass and tableware. It is a source of inspiration to all glass lovers and artists in glass out there.
