Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The thoughtful writing, technical expertise, artistic vision, and diversity of application make this an exceptional reference resource for flameworkers, glass collectors, and all enthusiasts of outstanding contemporary craft work.”

Craft Arts International

 

“Lavishly illustrated … Ten master flameworkers share their in-depth knowledge through essays on their artistic development and practical technical information. Interspersed between these highly detailed artist chapters are galleries that showcase the range of expression possible in the alchemical process of flameworking.”

Glass

 

“It’s a wonderful book. From its concept of showing the techniques and thoughts of ten master flameworkers to the beautiful photographs showing their work and a gallery of other flameworkers’ creations, The Penland Book of Glass shows that flameworking has come of age and is the most exciting and affordable technique in glass today.”

Richard Clements, glass artist

 

“The list of flameworkers who have taught at Penland reads like a ‘who’s who’ of contemporary flamework-glass artists, and this book showcases some of the best. Great photography and interesting insights into the minds of ten carefully chosen masters make for fine reading and profound insight into the complexities of this medium.”
Robert Mickelsen, glass artist

 

“The Penland Book of Glass draws on the expertise of the multitalented glass artists who have taught at Penland School of Crafts and delivers a volume that explains numerous glass techniques, which are precisely and lushly illustrated with wonderful photographs. The gallery of work by invited artists is truly inspirational!”

Kate Fowle Meleney, glass artist

“This is a beautiful book, and the essays from each artist are thought provoking.” — About.com, March 2012
