Merging the Glass Museum and the Glass Encyclopedia

Why? The Glass Encyclopedia is a useful alphabetical list of glass topics with information on a very wide range of glass. The Glass Museum, on the other hand, has detailed and in many cases unique information on glass topics. But unless you were looking for one of these topics you may not be aware of these very interesting articles.

So why not put the two together. By incorporating the interesting material in the Glass Museum articles into the Glass Encyclopedia we will have a very much improved Glass Encyclopedia, and much more easily accessible articles.This will benefit the authors of the articles, whose writing will be more widely read, and the readers who will find all this information more accessible.

This process may take quite a long time. The first combined page is about Cast Glass, and combines a brief account of cast glass with an article about the making of cast glass by Shona Firman, one of New Zealand's leading cast glass artist.  Click here to visit this new page. This is just one example of Shona's beautiful cast glass creations.
