Hello! Thank you for your question.
To learn about Sylvia Vigiletti's role in the studio art glass movement, I would suggest the following sources:
- Kohler, Lucartha. Women Working in Glass. Atglen, PA: Schiffer Pub. Ltd., 2003. This book profiles Vigiletti in her chapter on women glass artists of the 1960s.
- Zynsky, Toots. "Women Who Helped Pave the Way." The Glass Art Society Journal (2012): 52. In this brief reflection, Zynsky discusses Vigiletti along with other women glass artists who influenced Zynsky's work.
- Glass Art Society oral history interview with Sylvia B. Vigiletti, 2009 June. Sally Prasch, interviewer.
- Vigiletti's entry in Who's Who in Contemporary Glass Art. 1st ed. München: Joachim Waldrich, 1993.
- Himel, Susan, Lambert, Elaine, and Wilde, David. “Mary Filer and Sylvia Vigiletti at the Glass Art Gallery-Two Reviews.” The Leadline 6, no. 2 (Spring 1981): 10-11.
