About this Item

"In this generously illustrated book, the author assumes the reader has no previous knowledge of glassworking. He starts the pupil, as he has his classroom students for many years, at the beginning. 'Homer's clear enumeration and descrtiption of the eight basic lampworking procedures is first in print, and a major contribution of this work,' says Lawrence Eichman, former student and now teacher and owner of his own studio. From how to hold a glasss rod through as carefully ordered series of projects, he introduces methods that result in impressive but achievable sculptures. Along the way, he emphasizes safety, and comments entertainingly on the history and science behind the art, practical matters for the home bench, and business aspects of glassblowing. There are profiles and sample works of several successful sculptors." This book has 267 pages and is profusely illustrated. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever.
