Book Description

Creative and practical, Kicking Glass is a step-by-step guide for those wanting to practise the popular craft of stained glass.

From simple suncatchers and boho lamps to exquisite 3D constructions and delicately poised glass butterflies, experienced artist Neile Cooper guides you through the magical world of stained glass with a creative handbook for both the novice and more experienced crafter alike.

Beautifully illustrated with photographs of Neile’s own work including her glorious glass cabin in the woods and pieces from some of today’s most stylish designers, Kicking Glass is packed with ideas to guide and inspire.

This book provides comprehensive technical instruction in the copper foil method, covering everything from tools and supplies to exploratory techniques such as incorporating foraged and found objects into your work. Skills are demonstrated through tutorials with photos, instructional drawings and 16 stunning patterns. Whether you’re looking to decorate your windows, create lovely gifts for friends and family or design your own epic masterpiece, Kicking Glass is the essential modern guide to stained glass making.
