Instruction from a beginner's viewpoint Our book has been well received internationally including an excellent review from a bilingual interior design magazine from Hong Kong. We have tried to illustrate through the text and the accompanying photographs what it takes to successfully create a stained glass project from a beginner's point of view. We have recently completed "Stained Glass Mosaics: Projects and Patterns" for a fall 1998 release and are currently working on a third book which offers projects and instructions on sandblasting, leaded glass and copper foil construction. An exceptional stained glass instruction manual.
Reviewer: Len Dushnicky (email@example.com) from Winnipeg, MB Canada September 4, 1998 I am a stained glass instructor and I highly recommend this book to all my beginner stained glass students. It is an exceptional stained glass instruction manual beneficial to hobbyists and advanced artists alike. The instructions are very easy to follow and the high quality photographs show each project very well. The authors have written an excellent book and I wait with anticipation for their next book on Mosaics!! Great book for beginners
Reviewer: A reader from RAF Mildenhall, England June 28, 1998 I'm a beginner stained glass "artiste", and I received this as a gift. I think it's great, has lots of tips that made me say "Oh, that's how you do it". I showed it to my instructor, and he was very excited about it, said it's a good book. I think it's well worth the money, it has simple panels, lamps, boxes and vases, something for everybody.
