Synopsis:

Imagine being able to create your own stained-glass lampshades and vases for any room, or stained glass hanging panels to adorn your doors and windows — your own original works of art for a fraction of the cost of those you can buy. It's a fast-growing craft, and a lot easier than you think. You already own most of what you need in the way of tools, and you can quickly learn the basic techniques, which involve cutting glass into pieces and soldering them together with copper foil. The materials are inexpensive and the equipment is available at craft stores. Choose among 21 different projects that feature exquisite hanging panels, five colorful lampshades, hinged jewel boxes, three types of vase, as well as a decorative dish, candleholder set, desk clock, and sand garden. Glowing full-color photos show each project, plus all the patterns to trace right onto the glass. Tips on displaying your work shows how to best position them for a dramatic and romantic effect.

Synopsis:

Containing 21 original projects, this is a beginners' guide to stained-glass making that encourages the reader to use tools readily available in the home.
