Because a lot of the research and work involved required translation and illustrations from some German articles, I managed to collect quite a biography, which intertwines several of the most successful glasswork families from the 1850 to 1950 century.
It was an arduous process, much information that had to be summarized enough that I could convey the important facts and keep an interesting flow going at the same time. After all, this was not a book, it was a short magazine article about glass.
Next All About Glass issue will be in January 2019.
