This first monograph on the work of American master glassmaker Jeff Zimmerman examines both his sculptures and functional pieces and provides an overview of his breadth of technique and creative vision. Drawing inspiration from natural forms and employing advanced glassblowing techniques, Zimmerman's illuminated sculptures evoke branches, petals and waves. These organic forms are combined with human accidents, like crushing and splattering, embracing the quality of unpredictability inherent to the glassblowing process. Works such as "Biomorphic Bubble," "Rain Drop," "Vine" and "Serpentine" create fantastic and new formal possibilities for glass, while staying true to the traditions and techniques of old-world Italian glassmakers. This book includes previously unpublished photographs of works created throughout his career, as well as interiors featuring his custom light fixtures, vases and sconces installed in exhibitions, private homes, corporate offices and foundations in France, Belgium, Switzerland, England, Italy, Korea and throughout the United States. A student of the classical Venetian technique of glassmaking, Jeff Zimmerman (born 1968) studied with Italian technicians such as Lino Tagliapietro and Pino Signoretto as well as contemporary artists such as Maya Lin, Kiki Smith and Ann Hamilton. A member of several glassmaking collectives, most notably The B Team, Zimmerman has worked in studios both domestic and abroad. His solo work first came to attention in 1999, when his "Anthropology Museum of the Future," a sculptural installation featuring glass fetish pieces under a black light, was displayed at the Robert Lehman Gallery in Brooklyn. Since then, Zimmerman's work has been featured in the permanent collections of the Corning Museum of Glass, New York, and the Boghossian Foundation, Belgium, as well as private collections worldwide. He currently lives and works in New York.

In this unique book, noted family therapists Jeffrey L. Zimmerman and Victoria C. Dickerson explore how clients' problems are defined by personal and cultural narratives, and ways the therapist can assist clients in co-constructing and reauthoring narratives to fit their preferences. The authors share their therapeutic vision through a series of stories, fictionalized discussions, and minidramas, in which problems have a voice. Written in an engaging and personal style, the book challenges many dominant ideas in psychotherapy, inviting the reader to enter a world in which she or he can experience a radically different view of problems, people, and therapy. A wealth of stories told from the clients' point of view illustrate the creative ways they begin to deal with problems: Individuals escape them, couples take their relationships back from problems, kids dump their problems, and teenagers work with their parents to fight their problems. Training and supervision from the perspective of students are also discussed. As entertaining as it is informative, this book will be welcomed by family therapists both novice and experienced, from a range of orientations. Offering a creative and accessible approach to clinical work, it also serves as a supplementary text in courses on family and narrative therapy.
Small House in a House describes the creative process and construction techniques used by the author to condense all of the things necessary for his day to day life into a 257 square foot heated living space within an existing house. Despite a lack of formal training or experience in construction, the author found the majority of the work to be straight-forward and intuitive. The primary purpose of Small House in a House is to serve as an example for other people who may be considering such a project with the goal of encouraging them to move forward.
