JAMES MONGRAIN IN THE GEORGE R. STROEMPLE COLLECTION: REINTERPRETING VENETIAN TRADITION. Sheldon Barr and Linda Tesner. Marquand Books, Inc., Seattle, 2017. Distributed by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 112 pp. with 70 col. ills. 30 x 25 cm. ISBN 9780997249231 In English.
Due date: January 2017. Publisher's description: The Stroemple Collection boasts more than five hundred vintage Venetian vessels that illustrate the height of Venetian glassblowing during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In 2012, George Stroemple commissioned James Mongrain-Dale Chihuly's current gaffer and an exceptional glass artist-to make a series of ten vessels to replicate major examples of vintage Venetian glass in the Stroemple Collection. The finished pieces exemplify Mongrain's extraordinary ability to re-create traditional Venetian mastery in glass. Since then, the Stroemple Collection has commissioned Mongrain to make more series, all based on the historic works in the Stroemple Collection. For these, Mongrain uses traditional techniques and imagery to reimagine the Venetian style, working on a large scale to create monumental and sculptural pieces that reference tradition but are firmly within contemporary glassmaking. This book documents each of the James Mongrain commissions and will also include various examples of historic Venetian glass that inspired Mongrain in the making of these series.
