Glass Guide
Mini Encyclopedia

The contents of this guide has been optimistically described as an encyclopedia. It is predominantly designed to back-up the field guide. It provides a short coverage of some of the topics raised within the main body of the guide. This includes some details of techniques, manufacturers and styles. There are many specialist sites on the web.

Again it should be noted that this guide will not dwell on the master works but reasonably available items. Throughout we have used three basic sources of information. Glass books (and as the need arises checked the original references), electronic resources and our own notes from collecting, visiting museums, galleries and sites associated with glass production. We have learnt a lot from others in the field too. There will be mistakes, but we are more than happy for you to tell us of these.
