Delve into increasingly complex ways of incorporating these elements into unique glass compositions that embody the essence of shorelines and streambeds. Some pieces revel in the beauty of what is left behind when the tide recedes while others plum the watery depths in a complex multilayered block.
The book is suitable for all levels of experience and will help the beginner grow while challenging the more experienced glass artist. Many of the projects are sized for smaller kilns, but they are all easily adapted to any size piece.
Vitrum Studio, created by Judith Conway and Kevin O'Toole, has gained an international reputation for excellence in kilnformed glass, providing advice and inspiration to thousands of students over the years.
The brick and mortar version of Vitrum Studio is no more, but all they have developed over the years is being distilled into their Vitrum eBooks, with each book designed to be a Masterclass in itself!

Where is my eBook saved on my device?
Once you have downloaded your eBook, it may be stored in a different location depending on your device. We always recommend downloading the eBook on a desktop/laptop/macbook.
You would need a saw for some of the projects but I would recommend the book even if you don't have one. You can do the majority of the techniques without one and with some adaptation you can get by without one.
