The centuries-old art and craft of stained glass is flourishing among contemporary artisans and crafters, who are rediscovering its beauty and versatility as an art form. Once restricted mainly to windows, the adaptability of stained glass makes it suitable for a wide variety of other craft projects — lampshades, mirrors, ornaments, mobiles, etc.
This volume contains an outstanding array of 83 patterns — from ancient Egyptian to Art Deco — ideal for any project requiring historical ambiance. Whether you're an experienced stained glass worker or just beginning, you'll appreciate the beauty and practicality of designs incorporating Greek mythological figures, intricate interlacements of Celtic and Arabic art, the floral motifs of Art Nouveau, and a host of other historical designs — Gothic, Romanesque, Chinese, Pennsylvania Dutch, American Indian, medieval Italian, Victorian, and many more. Most of the motifs are represented by two or more examples.
Ed Sibbett, Jr., is a noted artist, designer, and stained glass expert who has brought years of design experience and stained glass expertise to rendering these patterns. Crafters in need of period flavor or authenticity will find them an ideal source of design inspiration. What's more, they're royalty-free — no need to pay a fee or request special permission.
