415 Original Designs for Stained Glass (Dover Pictorial Archives)by Michael Gowen
Synopses & Reviews
Stained glass workers searching for designs with contemporary flair will find what they need in this distinctive collection. Artist Michael Gowen has created a unique treasury of original motifs that reflect his long-time interest in quilt patterns, Art Deco, and many aspects of 20th-century art.
Over 400 black-and-white designs can easily be adapted to a variety of projects. Larger patterns can be produced by scanning small originals. Masterly compositions of graceful lines and geometric shapes (squares, circles, half-circles, triangles, rectangles) are enclosed in a diversity of frames — oval, diamond, rectangular, elliptical, as well as a number of irregular forms. Both beginning and experienced stained glass workers will be especially pleased to find that no shape is impractical to cut.
Often delicate and classical in feeling, these attractive royalty-free motifs can be used to enhance many elements of interior décor: sidelights, windows, lampshades, mirrors, and much more. Smaller designs lent themselves to miniature projects such as jewelry settings and dollhouse windows.
Stained glass workers will find here an inexpensive treasury of design inspiration and practical patterns for a myriad of attractive projects.
Unique stained glass designs with distinctive contemporary flair are adaptable to projects of varied shapes, sizes — windows, mirrors, jewelry settings, and more. Designs include circles, ovals, rectangles, diamonds.
