Showcasing innovative glass objects created from 1988 to 1992 by noted Italian designer/architect Pesce (b. 1939) through a special collaboration with the Centre internationale de recherche sur le verre et les arts plastiques (established in Marseille in 1986), this catalogue features excellent reproductions of 78 vibrant sculptural works reflecting in their unconventional design and composition Pesce's implementation of several experimental techniques. Two essays and three substantial interviews with the artist illuminating his multifaceted career and his interdisciplinary view of art, architecture and design are augmented by an extensive illustrated anthology of texts written by Pesce from 1966 to 1991, ranging from philosophical discussions of the social significance of art to commentaries on individual works.
