Fired Up: Contemporary Glass by Women Artists from the Toledo Art Museum presents work in glass by women through new, highly engaging interpretive strategies. Co-curated by Senior Curator of Craft, Design & Fashion, Annie Carlano, and Toledo's Senior Curator of Decorative Arts and Glass, Jutta Page, Fired Up is the first American art museum exhibition to look at the many achievements of women working with glass, from the male-dominated Studio Glass Movement of the 1960s to 21st-century installations and mixed media works that illustrate the porous boundaries between art, craft, and design. 

Ranging in scale from the tiny to the monumental, an international array of approximately forty functional objects and sculpture will demonstrate the keen conceptual, design, and technical contributions of these underappreciated artists. Blown, cast, slumped, lamp worked, or made in unexpected ways, the glass work in Fired Up emphasizes the magical interaction of the medium with light.
