Interessante per chi come me ha avuto modo di approcciare all’arte della lavorazione del vetro a lume da autodidatta. L’autrice spiega in modo chiaro, con l’ausilio di molte immagini e con un linguaggio semplice (nonostante sia in inglese io sono riuscita benissimo a seguire le spiegazioni) ogni passaggio per la realizzazione di vari tipi di perle di vetro. Esempi, immagini e qualche consiglio rendono questo libro un’ottima guida per chi ha voglia di cimentarsi in quest’affascinante e particolar ...more

This has been my lampworking bible for the past several years. When I hit a roadblock I pick up this book for inspiration as well as techniques. With "More Than You Want to Know About Lampworking" (or something like that) by Jim Kervin, and Corina's book, you need nothing else. Jim's book has the complete set up for your studio as well as the most important ventilation set up. Corina's book covers many techniques, including my favorite, stringer control.

This book is great for beginners and experiences lampworkers alike. Corina offers detailed instructions for making that elusive perfect bead -- covering the mechanics of shaping, how glass behaves in the flame, the way different color glass heats and cools and reacts with other colors and much, much more. She also provides helpful photos for tutorials and lots of ideas for inspiration. This book is a generous gift from one of the best lampworkers out there!

I have read many books on glass bead making but Corina's is the best! Tons of information that you normally learn by trial and error and then there is her delightful humor! She has workshops in Florida several times a year....I am going to start saving now. If you could only own ONE book on lampworking - this should be the one to add to your library!

Really well designed book on soft glass lampwork. Focuses on specific techniques and communicates them well through text and pictures. It doesn't hurt that Corina is a talented, prodigious lampworker. Probably for the beginning and intermediate level...once I can do all this stuff well I'll say I'm at the intermediate level.

This was the beginner's book that I relied on. It's beautiful, well-organized, and well-photographed, and the instructions are easy to follow.
