How to Work in Beveled Glass: Forming, Designing, and Fabricating Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this easy-to-use, profusely illustrated volume, a pair of preeminent glassworkers and educators reveal the secrets behind the magnificent art of glass beveling. Using the techniques in this book, craftspeople can transform ordinary plate glass into sparkling prismatic shapes. After a series of grozzing, roughing, mitering, smoothing, and polishing procedures, the diamond-like bevels are then joined with lead or foil to be used alone, or in combination with textured or stained glass. Included are patterns and instructions for 14 elegant projects — including mirrors, lamps, hanging ornaments, and window and wall panels — featuring an attractive mix of Victorian and contemporary styles. In addition, six guest contributors discuss their working methods and display and describe more than 30 outstanding examples of their art.
