I'm probably an intermediate glass crafter. I practice off and on for periods of time. I LOVED this book! EXCELLENTLY written, easy to read and very very clear instructions. Beautifully illustrated with excellent quality photos which are * useful * not just inspirational and directly related to the project.

Covers tools and studio organization with many useful tips on materials and organization. Has interesting and attractive projects in stained glass (most of the book) such as a kaleidoscope, boxes and panels , lampworking (recycled bottle beads), fusing (kinda boring project actually) a votive candle holder. I bought the book for two reasons: studio organization focus, and information on projects using recycled glass (beyond slumping a bottle to make a spoon rest). Have been delighted to find other techniques so well introduced - stained glass and lampworking primarily.

This book is almost 70 percent about stained glass; it should be retitled "The Stained Glass Artist's Studio Handbook ...". It was absolutely useless for my glass fusing research. I was hoping to learn about glass fusing techniques, including fusing schedules. I know that fusing schedules are subjective, but redirecting readers to the author's website is unnecessary self-promotion.

I do not recommend this book at all for anyone interested in glass fusing.
The cover of the book was very enticing and I wasn't disapointed with the content ! wonderfully detailed photographs, easy to follow directions, tons of helpful information and beautiful projects.
I am a lampworker and have not done fusing or slumping but I really look forward to trying out a few of the techniques that Cecilia covers in her book.

I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in glass.
