Kiln forming glass--melting cut or crushed glass together in a kiln until it becomes a single piece and shaping the glass with molds--has quickly become one of the most popular subjects in studio glasswork. This comprehensive introduction features projects both beautiful and practical that are sure to appeal to all beginning glassworkers. It covers all of the fundamentals, such as fusing, slumping and draping, as well as some intermediate and advanced techniques, including pot melting, inclusions, mold-making and more. There's also advice on decorative surface treatment of the finished piece, and an invaluable troubleshooting section. Nineteen exquisite projects, arranged by skill level, range from home d#65533;cor items, like a wall sconce and fountain, to sculpture, and even an amber glass pendant.
