Secondly, it explains clearly the terms and techniques involved in the actual manufacture of glass. Finally, it surveys the artistic aspects of glass making, such as the complex engraving of the Romans and the elaborate decorative devices of the great Venetian glasshouses. Illustrated with 143 photographs, this book vividly demonstrates the skill and involved in the making of glass. You will receive the book seen in the image. (Book ref. MC1300) £6.00
