Decorative Glass : Sandblasting, Copper Foil, and Leaded Stained Glass : Projects & Patterns
by George Shannon, Pat Torlen Decorative Glass : Sandblasting, Copper Foil, and Leaded Stained Glass : Projects & Patterns Availability: Usually ships within 24 hours. Hardcover - 128 pages (May 1999)
From Booklist , October 1, 1999 As an art form, glass, the earliest synthetic material, seems to fade in and out of fashion. Today, with a resurgence of interest in things Tiffany and Frank Lloyd Wright, this sand-based substance is appearing in decorations throughout the house--in mirrors, panels, doors, tables, lamps, and other places. Canadian authors Torlen and Shannon explain the how-tos of leading, copperfoiling, and sandblasting, all by way of more than 20 patterns. Equipment, materials, and methods are covered in introductory sections; the actual projects are illustrated with color photographs, graphs, and, when needed, process diagrams. Designs are simple, composed usually of lines and gentle curves, ranging from flowers to art deco-type angles. Cramped layouts occasionally detract from the instructions.

Another excellent book on Stained Glass Reviewer: A reader from Winnipeg, MB Canada June 4, 1999 The authors, Shannon & Torlen, continue to produce excellent instruction in Stained Glass, this their 3rd book. The photographs of their copper foil and leaded panels and sandblasted projects are of the highest quality. Choice of glass colour and texture in their designs make the projects quite remarkable, I refer in particular to the standing room divider. I recommend this book to all stained glass hobbyists and artists as I do to my students. I look forward to the release of their next book.
