Work in the field of glass ranges from individual, personal “fine art” pieces to large-scale projects and multiple pieces for commercial clients. Like most craft areas, employment opportunities range from work as an individual craftsperson to commercial designer. In glass, the artist’s visual abilities (color and form) combine with a technical knowledge of how the material performs during use.
