Synopsis:

For the first time, this important volume features nearly all of the ancient glass objects in the collection of the Princeton University Art Museum. Collected over the course of more than a century, the objects originate from locations across the eastern Mediterranean region. Taken together, the 509 ancient glass vessels and plaques provide a timeline of archaeological and cultural history from the middle of the second millennium B.C. to the rise of Islam in the 7th century.

An introductory essay by award-winning scholar Anastassios Antonaras summarizes the history of Greek, Roman, and Byzantine glass, with a special emphasis on people—workers, artisans, owners, and vendors—and on the processes they used to create and decorate these artifacts. Conveniently arranged according to production technique, each entry in Fire and Sand features a color photograph, ink drawing, and detailed description.

About the Author: Anastassios Antonaras is archaeologist-museologist at the Museum of Byzantine Culture, Thessaloniki.

Book Description Die Herstellung des Glases aus Feuer, Sand und Asche wurde wohl in Mesopotamien erfunden, auch die alten Pharaonen besaßen schon prachtvolle Glasgefäße. Die Römer verstanden sich meisterhaft in der Verarbeitung des Glases, und auch im Mittelalter und in der Renaissance waren Glasobjekte hoch begehrt. Faszinierend sind die Jugendstilgläser eines Emile Gallé oder Louis Comfort Tiffany. Das Princeton University Art Museum besitzt eine wahrhaft herausragende Sammlung antiker Glasobjekte. Der vorliegende Band dokumentiert nahezu sämtliche Stücke in herrlichen Farbaufnahmen, Zeichnungen und prägnanten Texten. (Text engl., Yale) 25 x 29 cm, 596 Abb., davon 556 farbig, Leinen.
