Glass Encyclopedia



The Glass Encyclopedia is intended to be the ultimate reference source on glass. It covers a list of topics that will be increased and up-dated regularly, building up to a fully comprehensive glass encyclopedia on-line.

Each topic has its own page and contains a definition of the topic with interesting background and history. There are also pictures, references to other on-line sources and articles, and suggested books on the topic. See the list of topics below, and come back often to see the new topics we will add.

Amongst the latest additions is a page about Dartington Glass and a related page about Frank Thrower and his designs . Also a page about Nazeing glass, another of the very few English glassworks still operating today, and this one still family-owned. There is also information on Komaromy glass, an Hungarian who immigrated into Britain in the mid 1930s and made "Bimini style" glass until 1975; and a page about the glass of August Walther & Sohne, one of the great art deco glassworks of the 1930s. There is also a new page about the glass of STS Abel of Zagreb, a Jugoslavian glassworks which produced some beautiful glass in the art deco period. Hope you will find these useful additions to the Glass Encyclopedia.
