9780812236477: A History of Glassforming

The special qualities of glass—neither solid, nor liquid—have required glassmakers to develop special skills for transforming raw materials into finished objects. In A History of Glassforming, Keith Cummings approaches the history of glass through the practices and techniques of those who make it. This is a fascinating study of the nature of glass and the skills, techniques, and machines that have been developed to exploit its remarkable and mutable properties. As Cummings demonstrates, glass has evolved from a rare and precious commodity, to a familiar tool of everyday use, to an art form prized once again.

Book Description A&C Black, 2002. Book Condition: New. To provide adequate heat sources and tools capable of handling molten glass, advanced skills in working with ceramics and metals are a prerequisite to the emergence of glassmaking within a society. Nevertheless glass production can be traced to about 3000 BCE in Mesopotamia where it likely developed from the use of glazes on pottery. This comprehensive and well-illustrated volume describes the development of heat-formed glass and illustrates some of the most beautiful examples in the history of the art form.
