How to Work in Stained Glass

Stained Glass Basics : Techniques, Tools, Projects
by Chris Rich, Martha Mitchell (Contributor), Rachel Ward Paperback - 128 pages (August 1997)  Sterling Publications; Julia Moseley (jmoseley@microsoft.com) from Kirkland, Washington , December 14, 1998
Best Illustrations & a complete discussion of the topic I've looked at a lot of stained glass how-to books, and this one is the best because it's modern, step-by-step, and has great illustrations and photographs. It's also got a number of good patterns, easy to more difficult, with tips and special instructions. This is the only how-to book on stained glass that I've actually used as a reference as I've been working my first leaded and copper foil projects. 4 stars

Stained Glass Basics

Decorative Glass : Sandblasting, Copper Foil, and Leaded Stained Glass 
Projects & Patterns
- by George Shannon, Pat Torlen
A reader from Winnipeg, MB Canada , June 4, 1999
Another excellent book on Stained Glass The authors, Shannon & Torlen, continue to produce excellent instruction in Stained Glass, this their 3rd book. The photographs of their copper foil and leaded panels and sandblasted projects are of the highest quality. Choice of glass colour and texture in their designs make the projects quite remarkable, I refer in particular to the standing room divider. I recommend this book to all stained glass hobbyists and artists as I do to my students. I look forward to the release of their next book.

Stained Glass : Projects & Patterns
by George Shannon, Pat Torlen (Contributor)

The author, Pat Torlen email: onedge@mb.sympatico.ca , May 28, 1998
Instruction from a beginner's viewpoint: Our book has been well received internationally including an excellent review from a bilingual interior design magazine from Hong Kong. We have tried to illustrate through the text and the accompanying photographs what it takes to successfully create a stained glass project from a beginner's point of view. We have recently completed "Stained Glass Mosaics: Projects and Patterns" for a fall 1998 release and are currently working on a third book which offers projects and instructions on sandblasting, leaded glass and copper foil construction.

Stained Glass Projects and Patterns

Stained Glass Crafting by Donatella Zaccaria - Artisan Zaccaria, head of a Milan glassworks studio, gears her explanations to both beginners and experienced crafters through step-by-step projects illustrated with photographs. Five patterns--a butterfly box, a Tiffany lampshade, a flower tray, and two abstracts--become the basis for learning two stained-glass techniques: copper foil with lead and "straight" lead soldering. Each technique includes excellent close-up photographs of the cutting, trimming, welding, and sealing processes, with enough text to guide unsteady hands. Simple classic forms are the book's mainstay, but the ideas contained in the last third are truly inspirational, ranging from containers to a breathtaking three-dimensional painted-on-glass horse from artist Giuseppe Codena, giving readers a sense of the limitlessness of the art.
