I’ve attached several bibliographies of resources about various casting techniques. If you wish to obtain copies of any of the items on our lists, please contact your local library. Additionally, the Rakow Research Library is a member of the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC); your library can contact us through OCLC or they may mail an Interlibrary Loan form to us. You may request up to five items at a time. We send photocopies of articles and microfiche copies of our books (if they have been microfilmed) through Interlibrary Loan for four weeks use. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any additional questions.

 

Additionally, this website provides information on many glassmaking techniques, which may be helpful.

Karen LaMonte creates large glass sculptures from molds that she creates. Her process is described on this webpage.

 

I’ve searched for some locations in which large-scale casting is available. The following links are just examples of places that accommodate large-scale casting; a number of others also exist.
