Intermediate glass artists can advance to the next level with this comprehensive warm glass go-to. It reaches beyond the basics with a range of fabulous, richly complex techniques: using molds made from plaster, rubber, resin, and clay; incorporating sandblasting, drilling, and cutting into multiple-firing projects; and adapting tools and materials from other crafts. More than half the projects don't require access to a studio or unusual equipment, and there's a section on “beyond the kiln” collaborations with a glassblower.
With this comprehensive workbench guide, acclaimed artist Brenda Griffith takes kiln-formed glass to the next level. From cast glassing and cold working to adapting unusual tools and materials, she covers a range of advanced techniques that glass crafters need to know. In addition to beautiful projects and stunning gallery images, information on best studio practices and a and#8220;beyond the kilnand#8221; section make this indispensible.
