This book provides great tips on cutting glass strips, preparing different types of molds, and selecting a kiln, as well as organizing your materials (which we all could use some help with). Also includes help on keeping records and notes on firing schedules, so you'll know what will and will not work the next time you do a project. If you've only used a microwave kiln, you'll have to venture beyond your comfort zone to create the items in this book, because the projects require at least a 14 inch or larger kiln to make. Step-by-step instructions are given for 30 projects, which run the gamut: jewelry, platters, bowls, candle holders, and coasters. he projects have intriguing names like Bar and Stripes Tray, Hanging by a Thread, Lattice Weave Platter, and Candles in the Wind. There are also a few tutorials, such as on how to sculpture stringers, glass fritage, drop foot technique, fiber paper mold technique, multi stack full fuse technique, and stripe fabrication technique, Not only will you be working with fused glass to create these gorgeous items, but the author shows you how to use up the scrap pieces that are accumilating on your work bench as well as frit, stringers, iridized glass stringers and molds.
