Splendor in the Glass: Creating
Stained Glass Beyond the Ordinary

Splendor in the Glass; Creating Stained Glass Beyond the Ordinary, certainly lives up to it's name! Not your ordinary, ho-hum, tired out, worn out, over done, been-there-done-that, future yard sale project book! This delightful, 120 page, fact filled book, with over 23 full-color, uniquely different projects (there's no conventional theme here) and over 45 Design, Color, and Tech tips inspires exploration, experimentation, and nonconformity in your design process.
Holly Stedman has enjoyed stained glass crafting for over twenty years. While Holly creates her own designs, most of her friends involved in glass are married to pattern books, claiming they aren't creative, don't know what they want, or just don't know where or how to begin. Splendor in the Glass helps those design and make stained glass like they have never before - and love it! While the projects presented may be reproduced, (scaled patterns are included) you are continually encouraged to detach from the printed pattern and improvise, modify and expand your thinking. Consider these projects as a starting point from which to create your own special masterpieces. It's refreshing to read the engaging, candid narrative included with each project. How, why, who, or what actually inspired each piece, and hurdles or problems encountered during fabrication are shared in a fun, non-tecky, conversational tone.
Splendor in the Glass will be sure to stimulate and help develop your creative ability; takes out the dregs, and adds the fun in creating designs beyond the ordinary.

Prairie Designs for Stained Glass Windows

This is the only book that I know of, to date, in the stained glass industry of original prairie style window designs. I learned about Frank Lloyd Wright in the early 90's when I had to do research on his style in order to design lamp- shades for my employer. I was really taken by his "prairie style" of design and felt a connection to my own work. Making the designs for this book was a joy because I really like this style of design.

Prairie Designs II for Stained Glass Windows

"Prairie Designs II" is the sequel to "Prairie Designs for Stained Glass Windows". Like its predecessor, it contains 48 original Prairie window designs in rectangles, circles and free-form shapes in a variety of complexities. It is different in that it develops motifs, such as triangles, in different ways and that it gives a prairie interpretation to real-life objects, such as flowers and plants.
