Preston Singletary: Echoes, Fire And Shadows
by Melissa G. Post, with essays by Steven Clay Brown and Walter C. Porter
Published by University of Washington Press, in collaboration with Museum of Glass, Tacoma, copyright 2009.
For nearly two decades, Preston Singletary has straddled two unique cultures, melding his Tlingit ancestry with the dynamism of the Studio Glass Movement. In the process, he has created an extraordinarily distinctive and powerful body of work that depicts cultural and historical images in richly detailed, beautifully hued glass. Singletary has translated the visual vocabulary of patterns, narratives, and systems of Native woodcarving and painted art into glass, a material historically associated with Native peoples through an extensive network of trading routes.
