Since the 1960s when the Studio Glass movement was born, the use of glass as an artistic resource to produce sculptures and other works of art has experienced a revival. In recent years, responsible consumption and production have taken on great importance in this movement.
The search for sustainable artistic practices has led a large number of artists to promote the use of recycled materials obtained in a sustainable manner and to explore alternatives that reduce the environmental impact of their creations. The small batch, limited edition and one-off production runs of glass are conscious, deliberate and intentional acts of artists who take great care and time over their work.
In this way, glass art creates objects that will outlive their owners without causing any great environmental tensions, while expressing concern about sustainability in the form of craft activism. Sustainable art glass production can be viewed as a vital antidote to the environmental issues we face.
