Contemporary Fused Glass has been the answer. It is not a pretty project book, nor a basic skill book. It gives the reader a little of that but not much. If you are stuck in the "Yeah, now what do I do" or the "why do I do this and what will happen if I change it to that"? Then this is the book for you.
It is very well written, easy to understand, and has a conversational tone rather then a list of instructions. It is well worth the money - and an ideal gift for anyone who loves fusing glass.
A 5 Star book! You won't regret this purchase.
