Description

This book offers a general introduction to the vast and complex subject of glass. The author examines not just the history and technology of glassmaking but also the social background - the lives of the glassmakers and the traditions of this fascinating and ancient craft.

Author Biography

Roger Dodsworth joined the Decorative Arts Department of the City Art Gallery, Manchester, a position which enabled him to study at first hand masterpieces of glass from the seventeenth century to the present day. In 1978 he moved to Stourbridge in the West Midlands, the traditional home of the British glass industry, and was actively involved in the setting up of Broadfield House Glass Museum, Kingswinford, the only publicy owned museum to be devoted exclusively to glass. Now Keeper of Glass at Broadfield House, Mr Dodsworth has lectured widely, both in Britain and the USA. He is a member of the Glass Circle and a founder-member of the Glass Association, on whose committee he has served since 1983.
