Art of Glass Blowing - {Books & How To Videos} on DVD

Glassblowing is a glassforming technique that involves inflating the molten glass into a bubble, or parison, with the aid of the blowpipe, or blow tube. As a novel glass forming technique created in the middle of the last century B.C., glassblowing exploited a working property of glass which was previously unknown to the glassworkers inflation. Inflation refers to the expansion of a molten blob of glass by introducing a small amount of air to it. This property is based on the liquid structure of glass where the atoms are held together by strong chemical bonds in a disordered and random network, therefore molten glass is viscous enough to be blown and gradually hardens as it loses heat.

DVD contains the following titles.

::1865 Reminiscences of Glass Making
~ Articles about the history and progress of glass manufacture. The object of the writer has been to gather interesting information gained from authentic sources, in regard to a branch of manufacture of glass creation.
~ 136 pages.

::1885 Wonders of Glass-making in all Ages
~ Among the discoveries due to chance and perfected by man's intellect, the invention of glass is certainly one of the most important. Besides the fact that glass satisfies a considerable number of our most ordinary wants, it is also to its power that we must attribute in a great degree the ever-progressive march of science, and indeed it is by multiplying indefinitely the strength of man's organ of sight, that Glass lays bare the most hidden works of creation to his investigation.
~ 338 pages.

::1897 Methods of Glass Blowing
~ This book consists of my Methods of Glass-blowing, together with a chapter in which I have described the comparatively new art of working vitreous silica. The individual operations of glass- blowing are much less difficult than is usually supposed, and considerable success in the performance of most of them may be attained by any one who is endowed with average powers of manipulation and who is moderately persistent.
~ 106 pages.

::1902 The Methods of Glass Blowing
~ The methods of glass blowing, and of working silica in the oxy-gas flame. A reprint of the third edition of my Methods of Glass-blowing, together with a new chapter in which I have described the comparatively new art of working vitreous silica.
~ 116 pages.

::1914 Laboratory Manual of Glass Blowing
~ The purpose of this little book is to provide a clear and detailed discussion of the elements of glass-blowing. Many laboratories in this country, especially in the west, are located a long way from any professional glass-blower, and the time and money spent in shipping broken apparatus several hundred miles to be mended could often be saved if some of the laboratory force could seal on a new stop-cock, replace a broken tube, or make some temporary repairs. Many men in physical or chemical laboratories have occasion to modify some piece of apparatus designed perhaps for other uses, or to design new apparatus. To such also, the ability to perform some of the operations herein described may be very valuable.
~ 80 pages.

::1920 Fifty years of Glass Making 1869-1919
~ A wonderful book outlining the history and techniques of glass blowing.
~ 104 pages.
