No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Fascinating site. First time I have heard of "check" as a glassworking term (always plenty of new things to learn) and "paper marver", too!

For info, although the site is American, the canes (murrine) shown in the Glossary section are Italian, from Moretti and are the type that have been available worldwide for some time.

Ok - I'll shut up now, otherwise this will become a review of some sort!
