Time for another book review. Warm Glass – A Complete Guide to Kiln Forming. And this is a very informative and comprehensive book of kiln forming. It includes fusing, slumping and casting and it’s written by Philippa Beveridge, Ignasi Doménech and Eva Pascual. It’s published by Lark Books. What I like most about this book is the fact that it provides quite a bit of technical information more than projects. If you want to know why glass does what it does , this is an excellent reference book to have in your library. There are projects, and they are very satisfying as far as what you are able to accomplish. This may seem a bit advanced for a new glass worker but it’s not. And it may seem overwhelming but it’s not. It’s just packed with information. I would still recommend taking classes and working directly with an instructor to get your feet wet in kiln forming but when you go home or to your studio have a copy of this book around to reference while you work.
