Product Information
A History of Glassforming by Keith Cummings 

A fascinating technical history of glass, illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs and drawings.

The special qualities of glass—neither solid, nor liquid—have required glass makers to develop special skills for transforming raw materials into finished objects. In A History of Glassforming, Keith Cummings approaches the history of glass through the practices and techniques of those who make it. This is a fascinating study of the nature of glass and the skills, techniques, and machines that have been developed to exploit its remarkable and mutable properties. As Cummings demonstrates, glass has evolved from a rare and precious commodity, to a familiar tool of everyday use, to an art form prized once again.

About the Author: Keith Cummings is a distinguished glass artist and retired head of the Glass Department at Wolverhampton University, U.K., where remains Reader in Research Studies. He has contributed to a number of publications, and his glasswork appears in public and private collections around the world. He is also the author of The Techniques of Kiln-formed Glass.
