The Stained Glass Home: Projects & Patterns

It’s absolutely breathtaking! The owners of the award-winning On the Edge Glass Studio have produced a wide-ranging, sumptuous collection of stained glass mosaic patterns that even beginners can enjoy crafting. Esteemed artists George W. Shannon and Pat Torlen offer a wealth of inspiration and instruction, as well as 23 projects for wall clocks, plaques, and hangings; trays and decorative plates; tabletops, nightstands, and headboards; and more—plus an additional ten garden stone ideas. A basics section covers everything a newcomer needs to get started—from copying the patterns to scoring and cutting to making tesserae—and individual sections focus on mosaic construction techniques and translucent mosaics. There are dozens of “Helpful Hints” boxes, as well as definitions of terminology. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.

Judging from the title and the cover image, I bought this book expecting traditional stained glass patterns. The book turned out to be a rather nice collection of mosaic patterns using stained glass as tesserae and cut shapes. The book covers various projects for use in home decorating such as wall art, serving trays, table tops and garden stones. The cover image is actually a headboard for a bed.

I bought this book because I'm taking a stained glass class and wanted more ideas for how to incorporate pieces in my home. While the projects are beautiful, they are not stained glass but are all mosaic tiles. I was extremely disappointed with this book and wish the publishers had insisted on an accurately descriptive title for this book, especially since the piece on the cover could easily be a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired stained glass window.

I LOVED this book. I have quite a collection of mosaic books and this is one of the better ones, with some more advanced projects. Beautiful pictures of the projects.

this has some really great patterns an projects in it, its a nice add to my library of stained glass books
