Glass Kiln Casting with Colour-de-Verre By Jayne Persico 80 full-color pages. 250-plus color photographs.
This is a "must have" book for anyone interested in fused glass. The main focus is on casting glass frits, powders or billets in reusable ceramic Colour-de-Verre molds, but the book is really about being a better kiln worker. With an emphasis on getting consistently successful results, Jayne covers a broad range of the valuable processes ranging from "How to program a Kiln" to understanding how frit particle sizes and color densities directly affect the final results of a casting. Learning how to fuse at low temperatures is breakthrough for many who have been fighting air bubbles and unexpected results with their past firings.
