Dictionary of Glass: Materials and Techniques

University of Pennsylvania Press, 03.12.2001 - 256 Seiten

Charles Bray has gathered together the various aspects of glass technology and practice in the only reference available of its kind. This second edition is entirely redesigned, with all new illustrations and updated entries to discuss new technologies and techniques. Aimed at all people who work with glass, whether professional, amateur, teacher or student, glassblower, etcher, engraver, stained glass artist, or industrial glass worker, A Dictionary of Glass covers both technical and artistic aspects of working with glass in a practical, easily referenced format.

The book is arranged as a lexicon of words and phrases, covering technical terms, materials, equipment, processes, and practices. Some of the entries offer succinct definitions; others are detailed articles that illuminate the subject in greater depth, many illustrated by photographs and diagrams. Also included are detailed appendices listing suppliers, schools providing glass courses, museums with important glass collections, and a useful bibliography.
