Overview


Stained glass artisans will welcome this practical treasury of designs incorporating the timeless beauty of Celtic art and ornamentation. Striking figures of the Gospel authors adapted from The Book of Kells, abstract designs, sinuous snakes and fish, stylized birds, and improbable four-legged creatures — all reworked from a host of authentic sources — comprise the 91 inventive motifs in the collection.
Accented with tendril-like vines, symmetrical weaves, and intricate interlacings, these authentic patterns range from dynamic linear designs for decorating flat surfaces to patterns ideal for use in working with three-dimensional objects.
Attractively displayed in circular, oval, and rectangular frames, the patterns are presented in convenient sizes that can be reproduced in larger or smaller dimensions as needed. Together they represent an indispensable resource for creating attention-getting window panels, wall hangings, mirrors, boxes, mobiles, lampshades, and a multitude of other stained glass projects.

I'd like to reach and say I was thrilled to view the pages of this book. As a stained glass artist, I cannot utilize these patterns. They look to me as if they were drawn with a Sharpie, and finishing touches were an after-thought. Also, what am I supposed to do with them? How do I incorporate them into projects? Creative in its own right, but too abstract for practical use.
