    Default WTB a few books

    Looking for:

    Glass notes by Henry Halem

    Beginning glassblowing by Edward Schmid

    I can get these new.... just looking to see if anyone is willing to part with them for a reasonable used price? Also willing to trade.


    These where suggested first reads for me getting into furnace work, if you have another you think I will benefit from me feel free to let me know.

    Check your library. I had to order the Henry Halem book, but my local library had the Schmid book.
    The most helpful bit of advice I've ever received:

    Look for the glasscaster website my Marcie Davis. She actually interviews Henry Halem in one of the podcasts. Very interesting interview. But at the end, he gives you a number you can call to order it directly from him. You pay more than ordering it through Amazon (a few bucks at most), but it gives you a chance to talk with him a bit if he's got the time.
