Easy to use and profusely illustrated, this book reveals the secrets behind the magnificent art of glass beveling. Within its pages, a pair of preeminent glassworkers and educators demonstrates their techniques for transforming ordinary plate glass into sparkling prismatic shapes. After a series of grozzing, roughing, mitering, smoothing, and polishing procedures, you'll join the diamond-like bevels with lead or foil, readying them to be used alone or in combination with textured or stained glass. Choose from an attractive mixture of patterns in Victorian and contemporary styles to make 14 elegant projects — mirrors, lamps, hanging ornaments, panels for windows and walls, and more. As a special bonus, six guest contributors discuss their working methods and display and describe their handiwork. More than 30 outstanding examples of their artistry offer helpful hints for techniques and a sparkling source of inspiration.
