"This book is an introduction to designing for stained glass. It is directed to those people who have mastered the basic skills of glassworking but who have little or no formal art training. It is the book that I wanted when I first started out." ― Jennie French
In this invaluable guide, stained glass artist Jennie French teaches you step by step how to design stained glass projects of your own ― even if you have had no previous training in design. For inspiration, study, and practice, she incorporates eighty-four carefully selected stained glass projects into the text, ranging from a powerful portrait of an owl in flight to a touching portrayal of St. Francis of Assisi. Also included are designs for flowers, leaves, animals, birds, landscapes, and architectural studies.
As you follow Ms. French's program, you'll learn the basic principles and techniques of design. Among the key topics covered: design sources, how to approach both abstract and representational design, enlarging and reworking designs, and how to design flat as well as three-dimensional projects. A new final chapter covers techniques for developing drawing skills, adapting existing designs to your own projects, and the growing use of computer technology in the design and production of stained glass.
Designed to encourage a professional and productive attitude toward designing stained glass, this inspiring guide will enable stained glass enthusiasts to move quickly and comfortably into making unique and attractive designs of their own.
