New in Paper You can easily form beads, candlesticks, and art objects from just a rod of cold glass and a torch. Heat it, manipulate it a bit, and almost instantaneously beautiful and new figures emerge from the fire. That's flameworking. A top teacher of the craft explains how to do it all, providing exactly the same information and exercises she gives her beginner's workshops. Lavish illustrations capture the entire artistic process. Look into the different types of glass to choose from, and find out how to melt a ball at different points of the rod; flatten it into a disc; and shape it into hearts, wings, butterflies, and the moon. Turn those designs into jewelry, hanging sculptures, and stirrers. The results are amazing!

The book begins with a Foreword by Tina Oldknow, Curator of Modern Glass at the Corning Museum of Glass. There follows an insightful historical introduction which gives context to the artist pages that fill most of the volume. One or two full-colour pages per artist display recent work with descriptive text and a brief documentary -- by either the author or the artist. Dunham's position as a colleague of the featured artists gives him a distinct perspective on the work as well as unique access to the makers and their process. Several of the lampworkers allowed themselves to be photographed while executing a piece, and the sequence of photographs illustrating their creative process adds to the reader's understanding and appreciation of the work shown. An illustrated glossary of lampworking terminology concludes the text, making this a valuable reference for anyone interested in lampworked glass. Over 75 artists are presented.
