Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The art of glass beadmaking has exploded in popularity during the past decade—and these awe-inspiring examples, exquisitely fashioned by 40 of the worlds top creators, reveal exactly why. Whether showcasing faces, animals, or flowers, these beads exhibit incredible detail and gorgeous color. Explore Bruce St. John Mahers fused and faceted landscape beads and the vitreous painted surface of Bronwen Heilmans glass. Kate Fowle Melenys luminous electroformed glass beads seem almost like sculptures, while Sharon Peters creates whimsical, often comical creatures that delight.

Every artist receives a lavish eight-page feature with approximately a dozen high-quality images of his or her most impressive work, along with a bio and personal commentary that provides insights into the motivations and inspiration behind each piece.

Book News Annotation:

Glass beads today are recognized as an art form, and this book proves it. Curator and bead maker Scott has selected forty "masters" of the art. Each is represented by full color photos of several pieces of work, along with a short explanation of the techniques used. The photos are often accompanied by quotes from the artists. The variety and beauty of the beads are fantastic. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
