These skilled masters offer a very personal perspective on their influences and work, with revelatory essays that give their views on flameworking and art in general. In photographic how-to sections of about 25-30 captioned images, each one demonstrates a particular technique, usually resulting in a finished piece."--Global Books in Print.

Amazing book for anyone interested in what can be done with glass. I kept reading and shaking my head, feeling more inadequate by the page. Beautiful photographs, wonderful artists and teachers. It's not really a step-by-step tutorial, but more general essays by some phenomenal glass artists. Read full review
