Stained glass craftsmen can re-create the formal, chromatic elegance of the Victorian with this book of 96 authentic Victorian patterns.
Well-known stained glass craftsman Ed Sibbett, Jr., has created these patterns from actual examples of Victorian work and adapted them to make the translation to glass as easy as possible. Among the 96 designs included are exquisite leaf patterns, intricate scroll designs, tulip and other florals, simple designs, ornate designs with simple borders, plain designs with flowers worked through them, border designs, and many others. The patterns appear in circles, half-circles, squares, rectangles, and ovals.
The level is intermediate to advanced, although the beginner, by taking extra care, can successfully complete many of the projects, while learning a good deal along the way. These patterns can be used whole or in part for windows, panels, lampshades, mirrors, frames, mobiles, transoms, or other craft projects.
