This enticing new book brings the magical qualities of luminous, color-rich glass to a wider audience. In step-by-step detail, Gillian Hulse demonstrates how to layer and combine clear, dichroic, and textured fusing glass with inclusions such as bubble powder to create gorgeous flat and three-dimensional pieces.
Designs such as a dragonfly panel and passionflower coasters take their inspiration from the natural world, while a love of art and textiles is the foundation of other creations---both flat and slumped---such as the Klimt-inspired Vienna bowl.
A comprehensive techniques section, detailed photographs and instructions, and clear templates ensure that glass enthusiasts of all levels---including hobbyists with access to a kiln---can create spectacular results across a range of decorative items for the home, as well as exquisite jewelry items.
