Given the level of interest expressed by board members regarding glass techniques and technologies, members may be interested in a CD-ROM,
"Mixing with the Best: Investigation and Comparison of Contemporary Working Methods and Mould Making Materials For Use in the Kiln Forming of Glass" by the academic and active glass-maker Angela Thwaites, one of very few UK glass-makers to have studied at VSUP, Prague, whilst Stanislav Libensky was still teaching there. The CD-ROM is available free, from the RCA, and if you would like a copy, you should contact Ms Reynard by e-mail at:firstname.lastname@example.org.
I believe Angela's work has been exhibited at Studio Glass Gallery, (website details on the recent copyright thread)
Anyone who doubts the importance of university research funding in the UK, should be aware that this resource was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board. All credit to them, and Angela Thwaites. This is a fine and worthy use of public money. Lets' have more of it.........
