Book News Annotation:

For artists working in glass and those who appreciate their creations, explains an ancient technique of shaping the medium that has been generally neglected since the Romans developed glass blowing. Discusses the history of the technique, glass as a raw material, principles of kiln-forming, separators and molds, kilns, firing cycles, controls, and annealing. Also describes the specific techniques of inert and bending level, stretching and fusing, flow, and casting. Highly illustrated, mostly in color.

Synopsis:

Kiln-forming as a technique to shape glass was in use for centuries before the Romans developed glassblowing, which has since become the more widely used method. Today, modern glass artists are rediscovering the versatility of kiln forming and are using the technique to produce works of great beauty and strength. In this book, Keith Cummings reviews the history of kiln forming and discusses pertinent materials and methods, such as slumping and fusing. The work of an international group of artists is used to illustrate the text.
