I never considered myself a hippie during the 60's and 70's, though I now know that I was. College dropout, political radical, artist, back-to-the land-er. I even lived in a converted school bus for a while.
Now I'm older, balder, wiser?
And I'm a certifiable GLASS junkie.
I love GLASS. It's what I do.
For the last 35 years I've worked with glass in many forms. Stained glass, fused glass, blown glass, glass, glass, glass!
And I collect information about glass. Books, catalogs, pamphlets, photos, postcards... All types of glass info, especially the old stuff that you rarely see anymore.
Some of it I resell on eBay. Most of it is piling up in my office/studio.
When I find something I think should still be available to other glass artists/collectors, I republish it.
So far, I've republished two old books - one about Painting and Firing Stained Glass, and another one about Glass Blowing using a torch and glass rods and tubes (also known as Lampwork).
My next project is another rare old book on Lampwork. This one will be "republished" as a PDF file so it can be automatically downloaded from my website, even at 2 in the morning!
I'll be adding more to this lens as I find the time, but for now, you can learn about my Glass Library, my favorite Glass Book Sources, and more Glass Links by following this link to my website at; www.FledglingStudio.com
