From the frontlines of the American Studio Glass Movement to the renowned studios of Cristallerie Daum, the Fenton Art Glass Company, Waterford Crystal, Herman Miller, and Steuben Glass, Dan Dailey’s glasswork has been in the public eye for the past four decades. Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive look at his beautiful—and playful—oeuvre.
Like his colleagues and predecessors Harvey Littleton and Dale Chihuly, Dailey’s work has been met with critical and popular acclaim at home as well as abroad, and collected by nearly fifty museums on three continents. His vibrant, humorous pieces draw upon his background in cartooning and training in nearly every glass technique, as well as a proficiency in metalwork—a blend of antic and innovation that continually pushes the medium forward. With a foreword by graphic designer Milton Glaser, an interview with the artist by Corning Museum curator Tina Oldknow, and an essay by William Warmus, this collection of over 400 works is an essential addition to any library.

Published in conjunction with the exhibition Dan Dailey: Working Method at the Fuller Craft Museum February 18 – September 3, 2012, Visions Realized contains three essays on Dailey's work, a biography, and a number of full color images of his work as well as images documenting his sketches and some of the steps in his process.
Dan Dailey: Working Method was an exhibition with a focus on significant works from twelve different series, including the original sketches and full scale drawings for the works exhibited. Dailey, the first graduate student of Dale Chihuly, has pursued his own unique voice in glass, from his singular work in antique Vitrolite sheet glass to complex constructions of blown glass and metal. By pairing each work with the very drawings and models used in planning and production, as well as images and video of Dailey and his team at work, this exhibition endeavors to pull back the curtain on the incredible choreography of technique and vision that make contemporary glass one of the most demanding, exciting, and unparalleled art forms today.
Toledo Museum of Art's first children's book and the first children's book about glassblowing, Glassigator is sure to captivate readers of all ages. Internationally known glass artist Dan Dailey and his daughter, artist/architect Allison Dailey, have written and illustrated this entertaining and charming story. Follow the hot shop adventures of young Libbey and her friends as Mr. Gaffer teaches them all about teamwork and the glassblowing process.
