Really authoritative practical guide
on 24 September 2008
This book gives reliable practical information, in an outstandingly clear and accessible format. It also gives a clear explanation of the technical issues involved in working warm glass so that the practical information can be applied with understanding. Particularly useful are the figures illustrating the behaviour of glass at different temperatures, and the excellent graphs representing various firing processes. This is always the book I pick up when I want to work out a new firing program.
Covering basic equipment, including kiln choice, and specifics of fusing, slumping, casting and pate de verre, I would recommend this book for anyone working with a glass kiln, or thinking about working with one.
