The Art of Glass: Flameworking Vol. 1

 
It is with great pride and excitement that we announce our latest book, The Art of Glass: Flameworking Volume I is now available. We had an overwhelming response to this book from the attendees of The Gathering in New Orleans, and now we are offering a wider release. This impressive volume features the work of both ISGB members and non members, and we are thrilled with how the stunning individual submissions came together to form something even greater than the sum of its parts. It is an incredible collective body of work.

Journey

Journey is a glimpse into the evolution of ISGB members who have chosen to share their
personal growth in beadmaking while supporting our organization. This fundraising effort 
was open to all members, from newcomers to well-known lampworkers, or somewhere
in between. Some chose to show just their current work while others included a visual
timeline from their early days working with glass to now.

 

 

Journey is 80 pages plus cover featuring 77 ISGB members and five chapters and is available
for purchase as a PDF download for $15 (please click on the Add to Cart button below) or as
print-on-demand book for $39 plus shipping
