Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The medium of glass isn't for everyone. This handbook does not cover all glass techniques, but glass artist Cohen thoroughly and clearly addresses particular practices. Her passion for the craft of glass art and her lifetime of experience are apparent throughout. An unusually large array of photographs well illustrates this colorful and luminous medium. This is not the book for readers interested in glassblowing, but it will be helpful for those exploring stained glass, glass fusing, or lampworking. Ceramicists and antique collectors may also be intrigued.
