The Stained Glass HomeBook - 2006
It's absolutely breathtaking! The owners of the award-winning On the Edge Glass Studio have produced a wide-ranging, sumptuous collection of stained glass mosaic patterns that even beginners can enjoy crafting. Esteemed artists George W. Shannon and Pat Torlen offer a wealth of inspiration and instruction, as well as 23 projects for wall clocks, plaques, and hangings; trays and decorative plates; tabletops, nightstands, and headboards; and more--plus an additional ten garden stone ideas. A basics section covers everything a newcomer needs to get started--from copying the patterns to scoring and cutting to making tesserae--and individual sections focus on mosaic construction techniques and translucent mosaics. There are dozens of "Helpful Hints" boxes, as well as definitions of terminology. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.
