Here is our selection of books about making glass and working with glass. These range from serious textbooks for students to fun books for hobbyists.
There are many forms of working with glass, some requiring large expensive furnaces and cooling ovens (for glass blowing) whilst others need only a blow torch (for lampworking) or a small kiln (for slumped glass). This selection of books covers the spread of information needed by glass-working of all kinds.
We have pictures for the first few, and many others listed below. Just click on any book cover or title for more information.
