Glass Casting

Amy Whittingham
Glass casting is an exciting and versatile process involving chunks of molten glass melted into a mould, where it solidifies. This practical book explains the glass casting process, from the initial search for inspiration through to simple and then more complex casting. With step-by-step instructions and supporting photographs, it is an accessible and thorough account of this challenging and beautiful process. Topics covered include: advice on kilns and studio equipment; step-by-step projects in open casting, lost-wax casting, part-mould making, burn-out moulds and core casting; ideas for experimentation to increase the scale of your work, explore surface pattern and use other materials; instruction on de-moulding and finishing, and further tips on reusing materials in the studio.
