Arts and Crafts Glass: A short explanation

The name "Arts and Crafts" came from the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society, set up in 1887 to show designers' work in a range of materials. Their movement had begun in the middle of the 19th century, and continued for some 50 years. It was a reaction against the extravagent, over-decorated Victorian taste and the worst features of factory production.

The founding members included Walter Crane, William Morris, and Charles Robert Ashbee. They advocated good simple design made in basic, inexpensive materials but to a high standard. A few hoped to form an alliance between art and industry, to apply artistic design principles and use mechanised processes to augment hand production methods. But most of the Arts and Crafts advocates rejected mechanisation completely and sought to return to hand craftwork and medieval philosophies about work.

They failed to change society in the way they intended, and some became very disillusioned when they realised that their beautiful designs were too expensive for "the masses" and were only bought by the rich. Nevertheless their efforts had a major effect on trends in design, and led directly to many of the design features of the art nouveau period.
