A peacock proudly spreading its plumage, a geisha strolling under a drift of peach blossoms, a mandarin duck paddling by a footbridge, a butterfly taking flight from a peony blossom, Japanese boatmen plying a tranquil lake — these are only a few of the charming subjects in this versatile collection of Oriental designs created especially for artists who work in stained glass. You'll find forty-seven different designs in this rich new treasury, each finding its inspiration in the peace and harmony of nature, each meticulously prepared for the exacting needs of the stained glass craft.
The patterns may be reduced, enlarged, or otherwise modified for a wide variety of stained glass projects: windows, lightcatchers, mirrors, lampshades, lightboxes, and more. A special feature presents patterns for four complete four-paneled screens of the type traditionally used in Japanese dwellings, with beautiful subjects such as distant figures on horseback moving through a summer landscape and herons nestled in a grove of cypress trees. They are presented here in four generous double-page spreads.
Combining the delicate and tranquil beauty of Oriental design with the luminous appeal of stained glass artistry, this unique pattern book will provide endless pleasure and a stimulating challenge to all who work in this time-honored medium.
