Great book for beginner/intermediate mosaicists

Years ago I bought this book and have enjoyed it ever since. All the tools, techniques and materials are listed and explained thoroughly and there are many photos to serve as an aid when purchasing items. The photos and step-by-step instructions are also very clear and helpful when demonstrating the different techniques and steps involved in making the projects. The thing I liked about this book was that they don't assume you have prior knowledge of this craft so although they don't "dumb things down", everything is clear and easy to understand. They not only tell about how to make the mosaics but related items too (like if it's a wall hanging they'll include instructions for making its base, mounting, framing, staining and hanging it, which is nice for those of us who are not experienced woodworkers). There is a good variety of types of projects: tables, mirrors, planters, wall plaques, stepping stones, etc. and each has a pattern drawn on a grid so it's easy to copy. I did the "Lotus & Dragonfly" hanging pictured in this book and have received many compliments on it from friends. This book is a great intro to mosaics with stained glass.

Excellent instruction on Stained Glass Mosaics

Shannon & Torlen have once again written an excellent book on stained glass instruction. They have produced an exceptional, easy to follow instruction manual with high quality photographs on Mosaics. Being a stained glass instructor, I recommend this book to all hobbyists and stained glass artists, as I do to my students. I look forward to the release of the authors third book on sandblasting, leaded glass and copper foil construction!!
