Description

By Christopher S. Lightfoot; With contributions by Zrinka Buljevic, Yael Israeli, Karol B. Wight, and Mark T. Wypyski

Among glass craftsmen active in the first century A.D., the most famous and gifted was Ennion, who came from the coastal city of Sidon in modern Lebanon. Ennion's glass stood out for its quality and popularity, and his products are distinguished by the fine detail and precision of their relief decoration, which imitates designs found on contemporary silverware.

This publication examines the most innovative and elegant known examples of Roman mold-blown glass, providing a uniquely comprehensive, up-to-date study of these exceptional works. Included are some twenty-six remarkably preserved examples of drinking cups, bowls, and jugs signed by Ennion himself, as well as fifteen additional vessels that were clearly influenced by him. The informative texts and illustrations effectively convey the lasting aesthetic appeal of Ennion's vessels, and offer an accessible introduction to an ancient art form that reached its apogee in the early decades of the Roman Empire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ennion, indeed it was THE Master of Roman Glass!! As a MA Art History with specialization: Roman Glass I have a library with about 200 books about Ancient and Roman Glass but to read this book about the Glass master Ennion and the products he could blow in the first century AD is really fasicinating! Compliments for the excellent research, the articles of Christopher Lightfoot, Karol Wight and all the other writers. When one is interested in Ancient or Roman Glass, you have to go to the exhibition but if you are not in a position to do so you absolutely need to buy this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ennion It is a tribute to the MMA and to Chris Lightfoot in particular to have gathered together the largest ever assembly of Ennion glass ever seen under one roof. It comprises over 90% of the known surviving examples of the work. Even the layman can appreciate the difficult technical skill required to make these beautiful vessels and even with modern methods they are still very difficult to replicate. A beautiful catalogue with good explanations of technique and background to the master glass maker Ennion. Lovely colour plates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating! Fascinating book! I'm so happy I bought it. It is very well illustrated and narrated, clear and interesting. It's amazing to see beautiful glasses that have been intact for so many years. Again, the romans deserve our total respects for the things they made!
