This lavishly illustrated guide covers everything you need to know to try your hand at this age-old craft.

An explanatory introduction on materials and tools, types of glass and safety, is followed by step-by-step techniques and tips for tracing, cutting, grinding, foiling, assembly, soldering, tinning and the application of patina.

The wide range of projects includes lampshades, candleholders, mobiles, frames, wall clocks, mirrors and much more, in both traditional and contemporary styles. The initial projects are illustrated with detailed step-by-step photographs to lay the groundwork for further items where specific details are highlighted. From simple to more challenging, all the items included beautifully showcase the splendid range of glass available nowadays. Good use is also made of additions in the form of beads and glass mosaicing.

With excellent colour photographs of all finished items, technical tips throughout, gallery shots with extended captions for additional inspiration, and templates for the projects, this book will be an asset on any crafterís shelf.
