This site evolved out of my ever-increasing list of glass-related bookmarks/favourites so I decided to make the list available to others who may be interested in glass. There are many thousands of websites covering glass - this site does not claim to be a comprehensive list but may point you towards some you've not found before, or serve as a handy index of sites you do know about. If you have, or know of, sites you'd like adding please let me know the details via the Forum and I'll add them to the proper category/ies.

The above sites offer one of the best subscription deals for glass information.
