“Presents the fundamental techniques of working with stained glass....Excellent color photographs and diagrams show materials and tools, as well as the cutting, assembling, and soldering of glass items... includes hanging glass panels, boxes, and lamps.... All have pattern diagrams and technical tips for construction....This is a good book for use with classes of beginning glass crafters.”
This terrific book also has within it the best set up for our glass art studio.
Stained Glass Basics in our opinion is one of the best written, easy to follow instructions books for stained glass techniques. It also shares the best set up for the stained glass studio work area and has very nice patterns and color photos.
The art photos that are shared here are two windows that Irene created.
One was created to match the wall pockets going up the stairs.
The other was a gift for a dear friend and it was made with flowing colors that went well together.
The design was found in this awesome book and Irene did modify the design to her liking prior to creating the windows.
Thank you for taking the time to view our wonderful offerings for glass art here at Happy Glass Art Supply,
Irene - The happy glass gal.
