I have become interested in art glass.
Art glass, and sculpture-like works of art rendered in the finest glass.
Who are some of the masters of this art,what are the titles of some of their works, and where are some of these works on view?

Sculpture in glass is relatively recent. But Galle did small scale commercial sculptures successfully. Lino Tagliapietra is one of the acknowledged modern masters. Much modern glass sculpture has been cast glass in abstract. Look at the collection of Corning Museum of Glass (www.cmog.org)
Art glass including Chihuly’s has been based on vessels rather than solid sculpture.
If you go to wikipedia and type in ‘Art Glass’ the history and names of the greatest designers will come up. You can also try http://www.artglass.org for information.
The most famous glass artist is Dale Chiluly. Some of his pieces can be seen athis home page -go to highlights (with their names) at http://www.chihuly.com/
