Don't turn on your kiln without it!  Brad Walker's new 2010 printing of "Contemporary Fused Glass."  This is a guide to fusing, slumping, and kilnforming glass that is supported  beautifully by pictures of processes and equipment and well-known artist's works.  Dick Ditore's work is featured in the book along with friends Steve Immerman, Marty Kremer, and Klaus Moje. www.warmglass.com/cfg.

"Joy of Coldworking," by Johnathan Schmuck, www.schmuckglass.com, is off the presses, and available here at Ditore Glass Works!  Be sure not to miss this long-awaited, enlightening book about taking your glass to the next level.  And for collectors, journey through this process as the artist refines his work.
