Summary

Summary

A world renowned stained-glass artist presents a complete self-teaching course in his fascinating and rewarding craft. He opens with a brief illustrated history of stained-glass art, showing great European cathedral windows from the Gothic and Renaissance eras, as well as secular masterpieces by more recent artists, including Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Marc Chagall. At the heart of this comprehensively illustrated book is solid instruction, starting with a detailed presentation of tools and materials and directions on their use. Following chapters deal with stained glass projects--how to create original designs and transform them into finished works. Full-color photos with explanatory captions fill virtually every page of this book, and present several stained-glass projects one step at a time, from their original planning stages to completion. A final chapter shows how to restore damaged works and bring them back to a condition near their original specifications. Hundreds of color photos fill this beautiful and instructive volume.

Library Journal Review

This beautifully illustrated book, by professional stained-glass teacher and restorer Valldep?rez, is intended as an instruction and reference manual for stained-glass workers of all levels of skill. A short history of stained glass in Europe and America is followed by an extensive section on materials and techniques. Step-by-step projects, including restoration of several church windows, are illustrated by color photographs of work as it was done in the author's Barcelona studio. Although useful to hobbyists, this book is best suited for use by art students and professionals in academic libraries. (c) Copyright 2010.
