This book presents the fundamental techniques of working with stained glass and is intended for those getting started in the craft. Excellent color photographs and diagrams show materials and tools, as well as the cutting, assembling, and soldering of glass items. The projects, created by crafters Mitchell and Ward, include hanging glass panels, boxes, and lamps. All have pattern diagrams and technical tips for construction but no step-by-step instructions. This is a good book for use with classes of beginning glass crafters.
