    To provide adequate heat sources and tools capable of handling molten glass, advanced skills in working with ceramics and metals are a prerequisite to the emergence of glassmaking within a society. Nevertheless glass production can be traced to about 3000 BCE in Mesopotamia where it likely developed from the use of glazes on pottery. This comprehensive and well-illustrated volume describes the development of heat-formed glass and illustrates some of the most beautiful examples in the history of the art form.
