Book Description

25 July 2011

Most of the glass art books available are devoted to mastering particular techniques: stained glass, lampwork, and so on. These books are full of projects that focus on just those techniques. As with our other Studio Handbooks, we sidestep this stale formula and offer aspiring glass artists a whole-craft guide for setting up a simple studio and exploring all that the art has to offer. The Glass Artist’s Studio Handbook integrates tools, techniques, projects, and creative inspiration into a single package that will have exceptional shelf appeal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beginners in glass 22 Sep 2011
This book looks at different aspects of the craft for glass makers wanting to set up a home studio. It includes techniques such as stained glass, fusing and lampwork. The instructions are well written and illustrated with a good introduction and the bonus of artist profiles. This should prove useful to the beginner glass artist. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

4.0 out of 5 stars Most enjoyable glass book I own 19 July 2011
By Miranda Jardin - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm probably an intermediate glass crafter. I practice off and on for periods of time. I LOVED this book! EXCELLENTLY written, easy to read and very very clear instructions. Beautifully illustrated with excellent quality photos which are * useful * not just inspirational and directly related to the project.

Covers tools and studio organization with many useful tips on materials and organization. Has interesting and attractive projects in stained glass (most of the book) such as a kaleidoscope, boxes and panels , lampworking (recycled bottle beads), fusing (kinda boring project actually) a votive candle holder. I bought the book for two reasons: studio organization focus, and information on projects using recycled glass (beyond slumping a bottle to make a spoon rest). Have been delighted to find other techniques so well introduced - stained glass and lampworking primarily.

The author also has a website where she provides additional information such as glass fusing and annealing schedules as well as a Gallery of her works: [...]

I would have enjoyed a stained glass jewelry project(using silver wire?)such as she exhibits at her website. Overall a beautiful book, great fun. Recommended for anyone wanting a thorough intro to these 3 glass work techniques.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not useful for glass fusing artists 12 Nov 2011
By J. Archie - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is almost 70 percent about stained glass; it should be retitled "The Stained Glass Artist's Studio Handbook ...". It was absolutely useless for my glass fusing research. I was hoping to learn about glass fusing techniques, including fusing schedules. I know that fusing schedules are subjective, but redirecting readers to the author's website is unnecessary self-promotion.

I do not recommend this book at all for anyone interested in glass fusing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book 31 July 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The cover of the book was very enticing and I wasn't disapointed with the content ! wonderfully detailed photographs, easy to follow directions, tons of helpful information and beautiful projects.
I am a lampworker and have not done fusing or slumping but I really look forward to trying out a few of the techniques that Cecilia covers in her book.

I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in glass.

4.0 out of 5 stars okay for the beginners 27 Dec 2012
By JustJamie - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am an intermediate lampworker and this book was nice, but I thought there would be more ideas on lampworking. This was mainly a studio set up book. Still interesting, but don't expect anything but the very basics for tutorials. I loved the cover and the Look Inside views, and didn't read the description very well so I was a bit disappointed (again, my own fault for not reading the description well). But I gave it four stars because I would have loved to have this when I had first started out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 22 Feb 2012
By Amazon Shopper - Published on
This book is so thorough in teaching various glass techniques. I'm a mosaic artist and I work with a variety of glass and to learn some new techniques is always a huge interest to me. I feel that this book covers a wide array of projects, right down to how to set up your own studio and have a safe working environment. The photos are all very vibrant and there are just so many pluses to owning this book. Highly recommended to anyone interested in glass art.
