The Stained Glass Home
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.
