Overview

The studios of Louis Comfort Tiffany produced a wealth of stained glass objects at the turn of the century, but windows were their specialty. Now, with the help of this meticulously rendered pattern book, you too can replicate a number of these beautiful stained glass motifs. Designer Connie Clough Eaton has skillfully adapted a variety of authentic Tiffany window designs, capturing in 60 detailed black-and-white line illustrations all the grace and spirit of the originals.
Included are patterns for landscape and memorial windows, panels, transoms, skylights, glass screens, and other "canvases" used by the stained glass artisan. Among the individual patterns are "Pumpkins and Beets," a window in the Impressionist style; "The Deep Blue Sea," designed by Tiffany and exhibited at the Libre Esthétique, Brussels, 1897; the Julia Wheeler Tiffany memorial window, a domestic panel featuring parrots and hibiscus; a peacock window, c. 1910; "Sir Galahad," the Ogden Cryder Memorial window in St. Andrew's Dune Church, Southampton, Long Island, 1901; a floral skylight, c. 1919, and many more. A splendid source of design inspiration, these lovely royalty-free patterns can also be used in assorted craft and coloring projects.

The lack of color made it difficult to impossible to determine the detail on many of the patterns. I found this to be particularly true on patterns that cantained flowers, leaves or trees.
