To get an impression, here is a Geschiedenis chapter, a chapter on Fusing met oplopende hitte and a chapter Slijpen met een slijpbok.
* The aim was to write that book that I wanted to buy myself when I started with glass.
* Various users have already called the book “the ideal reference work” and “the glass Bible”. “That book is not going out of my studio anymore because when I am stuck, the answer is in it.”
* In KM _ Artist materials (issue spring 2012) is a review of the book. The conclusion: “It is a candid reference work for colleagues and an excellent introduction for anyone who wants to enter the field of glass”.
* There is also a book review in Klei _Clay (November 2011 issue). The final conclusion was: “Even for the ceramist who does not want to purchase a glass oven right away, there are sufficient possibilities to fire glass in their own ceramic oven”.
