Synopsis: This book features more than 75 examples of glass, one of the oldest and most traditional of materials, in its many applications. These range from traditional examples to the new processes created by Ozone and Fusion Glass, which enable architectural glass to be both customized and texturized. Murano Glass is also featured, with its 1000 year old millefiori method updated to appeal to contemporary tastes. Scientific uses of the materials are also explored, including glass in fibre-optic lights and a new dermatological cream that contains millions of particles.
Glass is seen in all it's applications-- including architecture, furniture, lighting, and domestic products-- as well as in all its forms-- mosaic, sandblasted, etched, colored, texturized, and moulded.
