52 of 53 people found the following review helpful By M. B. Walker on August 16, 2000
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the best book I have seen for anyone who wants to learn the basics of glass casting and pate de verre using a kiln. It's more focused than Lundstrom's 3rd book, better written, with more coherent step-by-step instructions and lots of suggestions that will be useful to both the novice and the more experienced kiln caster. Highly recommended.
Note: This book is NOT, despite a previous reviewer's statements, about making beads. It has no information about beadmaking -- the earlier reviewer was probably confusing this book with Dan Fenton's "More Than You Ever Wanted to Know About Glass Beadmaking" (which is, as the title suggests, about beadmaking).

This is a good introduction to both casting and pate de verre, well-researched and the authors obviously have a lot of hands-on experience. Don't be put off by the fact that it's a decade old; although some of the latest equipment and glasses won't be referenced the techniques don't change.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was awesome. It had everyhing I needed to know to get started with pate de vere. It was the only book I could find which talked about safety in my workshop. I liked it because it was not the visual fluff found in all the other books.

Format: Paperback
This is one of my favorite glass technique books. It combines intense technical detail with profound humor, and was my main source of information for my first forays into mold making, casting and pate de verre. Many "how-to" books will tell you what to do, but they don't tell you why. They don't provide the science, the reason. This book is excellent because it not only provides all the science you could want, but it does so with humor so you can read the technical bits without your eyes glazing over.

I had great fun with this book. Being a beginner with pate de verre, it has had to take the place of classes, as there are none dealing specfically with pate de verre available where I live. I loved the relaxed and humorous style - it's always fun to learn with laughter. I found all the info I needed to get started and have successfully cast my first small pieces. The fact that it's not a 'pretty' coffee-table book actually made it very accessible to me and, personally, I like to be given the knowledge and then to create my own projects. Project books with step-by-step instructions have never really been my favourite. I can highly recommend this book to anyone interested in creating with glass.
