1.0 out of 5 stars I can sum up the author's advice: 8 Mar. 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author does not explain how to design, nor even the basic elements of design. Her instruction boils down to "look at what the professionals have done." For instance, on the subject of designing your own stained glass pieces, she suggests re-drawing any (or all!) of the 84 designs included in the book. Just keep re-drawing them until you get a feel for proper design. And on the subject of reinforcing your pieces, she suggests looking at how professionals have reinforced their works, and then experiment with different methods and products until you figure out what works. This is not helpful advice from a professional, this is the type of advice you might get from a novice pretending to know what they're talking about. Keep looking for a good design book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Designing patterns 14 Sept. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I did not find this as helpful as I wished, because I want details, i.e., follow the contours of the dog's face, then create where the hair is, or create the illusion of hair by making sure the direction of the streaks in the glass follow the hair, marking arrows on the pattern pieces. When putting the background glass, place the cut lines matching the cut lines of the main focal edge as in ----- example. This book seemed to go more into the "philosophy" or "reasoning" not hands on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review of How to Design Stained Glass 11 Dec. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book covered some of the basic principles of design pretty well. I found the section on shapes that should not be used to be rather helpful. I was expecting there to be more on blending different textures of glass, working with light sources, using color and line, and other principles of design, but this book did not cover these subjects. I also thought the patterns were a little disappointing -- some of them were nice, but others (such as the Spiderman and motocyclist patterns) seemed rather dated.
