The glassmaking skill is required to make green glass, clear glass or crystal glass items at a glass furnace.

See the Glass industry page for more information about using Glassmakers.

Glassmaking vs. masonry[edit]

There is considerable overlap between items produced from stone at a Mason's workshop, and items produced from glass at glass furnaces. Masonry is easier to get running and will clear excess stone from your fortress. Glass produces items with a higher base value (unless you make your masons use flux or obsidian), and using a magma glass furnace allows you to make green glass objects without consuming anything but dwarven labor.
