Product description

Synopsis

Lampworking, also called Flameworking, is a rich, creative glassblowing tradition. The equipment is simple enough for most hobbyists to set up in their own home, yet the technique is flexible enough to suit the most demanding artist. Here is instruction in a variety of basic and advanced lampworking techniques, complete with technical background data, made easy to understand. Widely regarded as the 'Bible of Lampwork', the first two editions of 'Contemporary Lampworking' have been used as a text and recommended by lampworking instructors throughout the world. This fully revised third edition, in two volumes, features over 1500 illustrations, including detailed, step-by-step photographs and drawings as well as inspiring photographs of lampworked art. Work by almost 100 living and historical lampworkers is represented in 32 pages of full colour, the book of special interest to collectors as well as glass artists.

Topics include: History of Lampworking; Studio Set-Up with Updated Suppliers and Sources; Shaping Glass Rod and Tubing; Making Beads, Marbles, Paperweights, Pendants, Bracelets and Core-Formed Vessels; Neon and Plasma sculpture; Glassblowing Lathe Techniques; Improved Annealing Procedures; Health and Safety Guidelines; Surface Decoration; Mixing and Using Coloured Glass.
