Description

Ever since the earliest craftsmen learned to make and manipulate it, glass has been a common designer element and art medium. From the simplest beads to intricate cut crystal goblets and breathtakingly beautiful stained glass windows, artisans have taken this simple substance and transformed it into works of art. This handsome volume presents a pictorial tapestry of the magnificent variety of decorative and stained glass through the ages. Featured is a discussion of techniques of engraving, painting, and emphasis is placed on the greatest artists in glass, such as Tiffany, La Farge, and the often unnamed creators of the great sacred art.
