Ceramics & Glass Basic Science PAPERBACK

This book deliberately brings together ceramics and glass because there is much information, normally attributed to one area which seriously affects the other. It has been written for students, potters and glassmakers working individually or in small studios. It is intended to be a source of understandable information. Charles Bray was Principal Lecturer responsible for ceramics and glass in the Faculty of Art and Design at Sunderland Polytechnic, now the University of Sunderland. He was responsible for initiating the degree course in glass and ceramics and was involved in the setting up of the first Glass Centre in Sunderland. He organised many conferences and these various activities stimulated much of the development of the major glass interest in the area. He was active for many years as treasurer and membership secretary of British Artists in Glass, and its first elected life member. He served on the panel of Northern Arts for many years, is a Fellow of the Society of Glass Technology, is an honorary Fellow of the University of Sunderland and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. He now has work in most of the major glass collections and exhibits mostly in Europe. He has been invited to take part in several international exhibitions and in many exhibitions of British Glass. 2000, 234 mm × 156 mm, 280 pages with colour illustrations throughout, Paperback, ISBN 0-900682-32-9

Window Glass Makers of St Helens

R A Parkin This is a record of window glass making by the Company of Pilkington Brothers, at Grove Street, St. Helens from 1826 to 1952. It is wholly about the sheet and rolled glass making factory known as Sheet Works, located in St. Helens at Grove Street only a short distance from the town centre. It was the birth place of the Company of Pilkington Brothers, originally founded as the St. Helens Glass Company in 1826, who started glass making under the Old Cone or No. 1 House, near to the banks of the St. Helens canal. The role of the Pilkington Brothers has long been recognised but it takes more than a hierarchy to establish the foundations of an industry that has become an influence world wide. The three “Ms”, “Men, Materials, and Machines” are the components that have to be brought together by management and in this record it is the men and women to whom this book pays tribute. They, the people of St. Helens who can call themselves glass makers, gatherers, blowers, teazers, producer men, splitters, cutters, carriers, supplemented by the claymakers, masons, smiths, sand getters, and later the chemists, engineers and designers, all of whom inherited that unique spirit and character that was inherent in that little township. 2000, A5 (210 mm × 148 mm), 128 pages with black and white illustrations, ISBN 0-900682-28-0
