Synopsis: This lavish volume celebrates the art of glass blowing by explaining the processes and illustrating the techniques with a dazzling array of finished pieces. Beginning with tools and equipment, it offers a practical overview of the basic techniques?how to gather molten glass from the furnace, shape glass, and use jacks?while making a variety of solid glass objects. Glass Blowing goes on to explain the importance of the punty iron and instructs on how to blow a tumbler, vase, bowl, and plate before advancing to the techniques needed to make stemware and handles. The use of color is one of the defining qualities of studio glass, and the author encourages the artist to experiment with a range of techniques to introduce color and originality to their work.

About the Author: Ed Burke founded E+M Glass with his wife Margaret in 1988 in the northern borders of Wales and England. Their work is characterized by Ed's bold use of bright colours and Margaret's exciting, deeply etched designs. They travel around the world holding courses, attending trade shows and selling their work.
