Techniques of Kiln-formed Glass

Cover
A & C Black, 1997 - 176 Seiten
Kiln-forming as a technique to shape glass was in use for centuries before the Romans developed glass blowing and yet it has been greatly overshadowed by glass blowing. Today, modern glass artists are rediscovering the versatility of kiln-forming and using its techniques to produce works of great beauty and strength. In this book, Keith Cummings reviews the history of kiln forming and discusses the materials and methods such as slumping and fusing which are involved in it. The work of an international group of artists is used to illustrate the text. This book should be a must for everyone interested in glass - whether they work in the medium or just admire its beauty.
