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

Antonio Neri Professor Michael Cable has edited a new collected volume including the renowned translation by Christopher Merrett of L'Arte Vetraria by Antonio Neri.

Practising Stained Glass Safely

M Stanton Harris Very little data has been collected on health and safety in stained glass, the small amount that exists has gone either unnoticed or undiscovered, therefore, the information collected and researched here should be of benefit. This book has been prepared for the purpose of promoting a safer place of work for anyone who now or in the future, intends to find employment in stained glass work. It does not pretend to be a technical manual on health and safety matters, but is intended to be a useful guide to highlight the dangers when working with hazardous materials in everyday use, and provides directions towards working within the Approved Code of Practice (ACoP). Awareness is the key to a long and fruitful working life, and this simple guideline will, if anything, draw attention to, and generate safer working practices, ensuring the continuation of this ancient art form. 2000, A5 (210 mm × 148 mm), 48 pages with colour illustrations throughout. ISBN 0-900682-26-4. Paperback.
