Abstract:   (612 Views)
Studying the ways that glass was made prior to the Industrial Revolution is not possible through existing works that are often not well cited due to illegal drilling. Archaeological excavations also lack precise information regarding the preservation process of glass furnaces that have been demolished and rebuilt over time. Considering that image resources are one of the most valuable documents available for historical studies, this study examines the methods of glass making including working methods, furnaces, workshop layout, tools, etc. based on visual documentation. Existence is dealt with. This study seeks to address the question of what the prevailing conditions of the pre-industrial glassmaking workshops were based on the methods of construction and facilities and manpower. In this research, which is a type of historical-analytical research, the method of data collection as library is based on available resources. The results of this study show that the pre-Industrial Revolution paintings contain valuable information on how the workshops are arranged, including the types of furnaces, the type of furnaces, their location, the fuel used, Tools and ... In addition, in these pictures the glass is studied by the glassmaker. It is clear that before the industrial revolution, the glassmaker was doing the glass making activity individually. In the course of time, glassware has come in a variety of tools and formats using advanced furnaces. In fact, the very finesse and small size of the historical examples were dependent on the style and instrumentation of the period.
