These images come from three books in the a series called A Schiffer Book for Collectors. I encourage furnace glass workers to examine these books because some of what they present is considered a style of modern hand worked glass, although most of these pieces were molded or mold blown. These are copyright by the photographers or publishers and are used under copyright fair use of limited portions of a book for review and educational purposes. fair use copyright law link
