The Glass Art of Sarah Hall by J.S. Porter presents 27 beautifully illustrated art glass installations. Hall’s work ranges from a solar tower in Vancouver to leaf patterns in an Arizona sanctuary, from whimsical prismatic glass in a children’s centre to abstract designs at the Embassy of Kuwait and the jewelled splendour of the ‘Wisdom Windows’ at Massey College in Toronto. Her work combines joy with serenity and experiment with reverence. The text draws on biography, philosophy and art history in a style at once meditative and conversational. The book captures one of North America’s finest glass artists at the peak of her technical innovation and artistic creativity.
"The wrap-around cover of Sarah Hall’s book enfolds 100 pages of brilliant colour, the play of art on glass, the beauty of that combination and its overflow on what surrounds it. The rich variety of her palette is well captured through photographs - stunning and serene, robust and calming - indicative of Sarah’s all-embracing outreach, in turn meditative and playful, uplifting and contemplative. How many shades of blue there are, how many shades of gold: airbrushed and hand painted, screen printed and sandblasted, solar cells and laminated glass.
J.S.Porter’s poetic writing catches well the imagery he obviously enjoys. “She braids licks of light - fire, light, water, and the word - in upward surges reaching for more radiance.”...“Beauty. Tenderness. A light touch. She makes visible the usually invisible thrust of life.” The Glass Art of Sarah Hall would grace any library. Within its covers lie untold feasts for the eyes and nourishment for the soul." Pat Fitzpatrick, CSSp
