Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This work will appeal primarily to readers already experienced in a particular craft who wish to depict angels in their chosen medium. A brief pictorial gallery of professional artist's interpretations of angels is followed by 77 projects in a variety of craft techniques and materials including fabric, fibers, polymer clay, wood, papier-mch, batik, stained glass, and metal. These are not your cutesy, run-of-the-mill angels. Projects range from very ambitious life-size angels created for a church sanctuary to a guardian angel pin crafted from polymer clay. Morgenthal sees the projects, contributed by more than 50 crafts designers, as starting points for those wishing to create their own designs or as inspiration for individuals who have always wanted to learn a craft but have never done so. Most include detailed materials and tools lists, patterns, and instructions; others provide a color photograph and expect the artisan to use it as a jumping-off place. Recommended for large public libraries and craft collections. [A Better Homes and Gardens Crafts Club main selection.]-Janice Zlendich, California State Univ. Lib., Fullerton
