This volume is a must for beginners and a great adjunct for the experienced glass worker. It has a wealth of information covering tools, compatibility testing, annealing, glass qualities, kiln and kiln preparating, sagging, slumping, fusing, cutting, grinding and polishing. Boyce Lundstrom provides a the detail necessary to make fine glass products the first time around. Worth every penny.

I suppose this is considered one of the best books out there for glass fusing, but I was disappointed that it did not include more practical information for beginners. I had more questions when I finished reading it than I did before I read it. It is interesting, but definately not a how to book for beginners.

I just started working wth kiln formed glass. This is the book I have learned the most from. It answered many of my questions and provided some valuable technical advice. Now, mind you, it is dated, in terms of equipment & chemical use...we now have digital controls and specialty products. But if you have ever asked yourself what if, why or why not when kiln forming, Lundstrom has the answer. He had been there, someone had tried that, and here's what happened in 1984.

Simple and basic layout a plus. Few glossy/color photos and projects are dated (possible minus for some). For some, it may be a little pricey for an "old" book. Get it used if you can. But if you want good info, this book is for you.

The Kin Firing Glass: book was terrific for new hot glass hobbyists. Beware of poor packaging - product arrived in unusable condition.

Has some good info, but is 70% fluff. Art is uninspiring.
