5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent photos, information - Would buy again!
I have been collecting Fenton for several years and finally got tired of checking this book out at my library, so I bought it.The photos, history and general information are pheomenal!The Whitmyers have outdone themselves with this volume.I have learned SO MUCH reading through this book.It makes me a stronger, better-educated collector.When I go on my cross-country glass shopping trips, it is one of only three books that go with me(one of the others is their book on Fenton 1905-1939).

5-0 out of 5 stars Identifies Pieces In Your Grandmother's China Cabinet
This is a thorough book and one that I refer to often. It helps to identify many of those pieces you find in your grandmother's china cabinet. There is a lot of information about the various designs, colors and years of production. It's one of the handbooks that I constantly look to for information.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Fenton lovers!!
I got this gift for someone else, and they LOVE IT. All the information they were seeking was there, plus it helped price and identify the Fenton items they had.

The pictures in the book are beautiful, you can see every detail.

3-0 out of 5 stars Many photos, a lot of info, but difficult to use.
The lack of an index makes this book difficult to use efficiently.The only guide is the table of contents which divides the book by pattern, then color.If you want to look up a particular piece and you don't know the name of the pattern, you will have to look through the entire book to figure it out and hope the piece you have happens to be in this book. Likewise if you don't know the color name of the piece. With Fenton, what you think is pink might actually be called peach.Is what you have light blue, aqua or turquoise?You won't be able to figure it out unless you look at every possibility.If you happen to collect Fenton "Amberina" don't buy this book, there isn't any reference at all to that color.
I find the layout too busy and hard to look out.The black type on green background for the price guide adds to the busy look.
Yes, there are a lot of photos and info but in my opinion, the book really needs to be more well organized for me to call it a good book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Important and Beautiful
If you have any interest in the beauty of glass, you should have this book. With over 800 images in full color, this richly illustrated volume could be savored only as a visual experience, while at the same time it has been written with intelligence, style and grace for anyone with an interest in glass. That includes the casual browser of art books (like me) and also, I believe, professional scholars and serious collectors.As beautifully produced as any coffee table book, it also is an engaging and important study of a largely neglected aesthetic medium.

People who consider themselves part of the art glass world will find much that is new here, while the superb writing has a wit and sparkle that is largely foreign to strictly academic treatments. It is the writing that sets this book apart and gives it its appeal across the spectrum of readers.Rarely do you find a big book that you can actually read.The authors have a real talent for setting the stage of each chapter, describing the people and the art works, and especially the artistic challenges of each period, with an eye for apt details and description.

The success of this work may be due to the unusual collaboration of two authors, each noted in her own field: a British artist in stained glass and an American decorative arts scholar, researcher, and curator.The result is a thoughtful balance of perceptions, informed by history while grounded in the immediate response to the work of art.

The book has several key themes.It is first a review of the roots of contemporary art glass from the revival, in the late nineteenth century, of medieval techniques for making stained glass windows, then tracing an arc to the world-wide popularity of glass art today as an abstract expression of form, color, and emotion.The interconnection between flat stained glass and `studio' glass (blown, cold worked, etc.) has rarely been acknowledged and has never been explored within the same volume, to my knowledge.Secondly, the book celebrates and documents art glass as a globally evolving aesthetic medium, providing substantive examples from Japan and Australia along with the UK, Europe, and the US.A chapter devoted to Dale Chihuly's internationalinfluence calls him a "rock star" of glass; since I suppose more has been written about Chihuly than all other glass artists combined, this label is presumably an example of British restraint. It is, however, in the section on those artists who studied under Chihuly that the authors reveal the wider connections within the glass world. This perspective, which might be considered the third theme of the book, is that glass art coexists with architecture and the `fine arts' (sculpture and painting) within an intellectual framework of theories about art.Not just a craft driven by incremental improvements in, say, kiln technology, for at least the last 150 years glass art has been a medium of ideas.Those ideas and their evolution are the real subject of this book.

Like most people, I am more likely to buy a reproduction in a museum store and to display it on the kitchen table with apples in it, than to own a Chihuly. This book fed my amateur's appetite for substantive big-picture understanding of the evolution of glass art, without bogging me down in minutiae of how scholarship itself evolved.It seems most critics are more interested in dissecting each other's tiny theories than in helping people see with clarity the work in front of them.That is why this book is such a breath of fresh air. It is written both for people who slept through art history classes in college and for the museum curator with specialized expertise but a willingness to think of glass in a new way.

The only thing I can suggest if the book is reprinted, is to include indications of size of some of the pieces.I found myself wondering sometimes if an illustration represented a six-inch or six-foot piece.While I missed seeing some of the best-known monuments of art glass, these are available elsewhere and I appreciated that the illustrations are generally perfect and convincing in support of the text.In fact, it is refreshing to see a book of this beauty that is specifically NOT a bunch of best hits cobbled together around an unconvincing narrative.Instead, I find this an absorbing and thoughtful argument that engages the mind, challenges the eye to see more deeply, and offers new insights that I will be thinking about whenever I look at the windows in a church, glass objects in a museum or antique store, or at the paperweight in front of me (my one piece of truly legitimate art glass, its mysteries will never stop unfolding no matter how often I look at it, and it is the reason I bought this book).This book offers far more than I expected, more illustrations, more ideas, and better writing. It deserves serious attention.

Product Description
Fenton Art Glass Company began producing Hobnail items in several shapes as special orders for other companies during the 1930s. The pattern seemed popular, so Hobnail was introduced into the Fenton general line in opalescent colors in 1940. Since that time Hobnail has been made in many colors and shapes. To date, there has been no single reference that combines all of Fentons Hobnail productionuntil now! All shapes and colors of the entire Fenton Hobnail production from the late 1930s to the present are covered in Fenton Art Glass Hobnail Pattern. This book groups similar items by category, such as baskets, bowls, candles, lamps, pitchers, vases, and vanity items. Pieces from the Fenton general line, as well as special order items for entities like the Fenton Gift Shop, Levay Distributing, and QVC are included. Each piece is described, priced, and dated. Photographs showing at least one color of each shape are included. The book describes over 400 shapes of Hobnail items, many in numerous colors, and includes over 600 photographs.Its a must-have for Fenton collectors everywhere, and a perfect companion to the Whitmyers other Fenton titles. ...

Product Description
This book and its companion volume are the first in English to survey the entire range of Scandinavian glass companies and designers. Their beautiful glass has spawned one of the hottest collecting fields today. The volumes are divided by color, with the dark tones of Smoke and the clear crystal of Ice included in this book. Each volume has hundreds of color photographs chronicling the creations that arose out of Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Norway. Together these nations were responsible for producing some of the most extraordinary glass of the 20th century. Here is the high quality designer glass produced by skilled teams of glassmakers working at Orrefors, Kosta, iittala, Nuutajarvi, Riihimaki, Hadeland, Strombergshyttan, and Johansfors led in technical virtuosity and design innovation. Designers such as Tapio Wirkkala, Timo Sarpaneva, Vicke Lindstrand, Edward Hald, Nanny Still, Erik Hoglund, and dozens of others contributed more to 20th-century factory glass production than any group outside of Italy. With detailed captions, signatures and labels, company histories, designer biographies, a comprehensive bibliography, index, and price guide, this book along with its companion volume Fire & Sea will surely become the standard reference on Scandinavian glass and essential for collectors, dealers, researchers, curators, and anyone interested in modern design. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice guide for fans of Scandinavian glass
I recently had to help my family price out their collection of Scandinavian glass and pottery for insurance purposes.My parents collected many items from Sweden and Denmark from the 1960s and beyond but could not always remember where they bought a particular items.This book was an ENORMOUS help.I was able to find at least half a dozen pieces that we owned and determined reasonable values for quite a few more.

I also purchased the 'Fire and Sea' book by the same authors.The difference is this book deals mostly with clear, lightly colored, etched or similar styles of glass while the 'Fire and Sea' book deals more with colored glass.Both are excellent and have beautiful pictures.I just wish they had released a book on pottery too. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
This book is a treasure trove of patterns and ideas.I am an advanced stained glass artist, and these designs have opened the doors to a whole set of new design thoughts!

By themselves, the designs, even though some date to the 1860's, seem fresh and modern.The patterns are softly colored, and by just changing the colors, a whole new window appears.

If you are at all attracted to creating stained glass, by all means, pick up this book!

4-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful patterns...
A very nice book of art nouveau patterns...many of the patterns are large/complicated, but it does have some patterns that are doable for less experienced crafters. The only flaw in the book is that it doesn't have black/white images to accompany the full-color images, which means you'll have to scan it into Photoshop and fuss with it a bit to get a simple/crisp printable pattern.

5-0 out of 5 stars Inspiring
This collection of windows has inspired my creative juices.I have already
used the book to design sidelights and rakehead windows for my front entrance.

5-0 out of 5 stars Art Nouveau at it's splendid best!
Although the designs in this book may not be for the beginning stained glass artist, the color combinations and whimsy incorporated in them will most certainly get your creative juices flowing!I spent several hours just thinking of how I might take just small segments of some of these masterpieces of glasswork to create my own projects.Although Art Nouveau as a whole "look" may be too much for some people, there are certain aspects of these works that are timeless and would fit with nearly any other design genre.Great book for any artisan or craftsperson in search of marvelous design ideas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stunning!
I absolutely love this book.It's definitely not for beginning stained glass crafters, though - lots of curves and intricacies.I'm looking forward to when I have the expertise to use some of the patterns.

There are 30 pages of some of the best art nouveau patterns I have ever seen.I've already used one of the patterns to create a needlepoint pattern, and I plan on using many more.Even better than I anticipated! ... Read more

Product Description

For more than 75 years, the Penland School of Crafts has attracted the most creative crafters from across the globe‹and the Penland Book series is dedicated to showcasing the stunning work these very special artists create. This gorgeous new entry focuses on glass and the ten top contemporary flameworkers who have taught at the school, all of whom have areas of expertise that make them leaders in their field. These skilled masters offer a very personal perspective on their influences and work, with revelatory essays that present their views on flameworking and art in general. In photographic how-to sections of about 25-30 captioned images, each one demonstrates a particular technique, usually resulting in a finished piece. Liz Mears presents an assortment of surface treatments, showing four methods of sandblasting glass and ways to adorn the newly sandblasted surface. Paul Stankard conjures a naturescape in a phenomenal paperweight design, while Janis Miltenberger forms a majestic glass cage. The combined knowledge of these crafters, the thoughtful writing, and the one-of-a-kind pieces displayed in both the how-to sections and breathtaking gallery, will aid and inspire glass artists as well as collectors. The ten master-class teachers are Vittorio Costantini, Shane Fero, Ingalena Klenell, Kristina Logan, Elizabeth Mears, Janis Miltenberger, Susan Plum,Sally Prasch, Emilio Santini, and Paul Stankard.

5-0 out of 5 stars For all Glass Lovers
I purchased this exquisite book as a gift for our son, who has a great love for beautiful glass art.It is filled with great photography, wonderful info from the artists, and actual photos of glass art in production.He loved it, and I know he will enjoy this book for years to come.

4-0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book
I buy a lot of books on glass, but this is definitely the best I have ever read. I liked it so much I gave my first copy away (to a glass worker) and bought myself another one. The chapters are written by the world's best glass artists (eg Paul Stankard) telling us how they make their glass masterpieces. It was almost enough to inspire me to buy a furnace and get started! [...]

5-0 out of 5 stars My new favorite!
I have said this of only one other book to date; buy it now, because if it goes out of print and become unavailable, you will regret not having purchased it. (At least if you are someone who works with glass)
I don't know why I waited so long to get this book.I guess because I hadn't seen it.One day, while exploring in a brick & mortar store, I came across this book and was wowed; knew I had to get it.Of course Amazon charges 30% less, so I came home & ordered it.Now having physical possession of the book, I am even more impressed, enough to call it my favorite book in the area (and I have A LOT OF GLASS BOOKS).
The photography and overall quality of the book is wonderful.The images provide a pretty good survey of the top glass artist in the world right now, and several have generously provided step by step how-tos.
I really enjoyed reading their biographies and the personal insights into their own creative process provided by each of the contributing artists.
I think this book would be invaluable to anyone who works with glass, irrespective of their level, and to people interested in the arts in general.It is a wonderful survey of the top hot glass artists creating today.
I can't say enough good things about this book.
Bravo (Lark) very well done!

5-0 out of 5 stars A beautiful, fascinating document of modern glass excellence
The Penland Book of Glass is beautiful, filled with images of fantastic work from leading flameworkers. Just as importantly, the ten featured chapter artists each give fascinating and very well-written accounts of their lives and their work, providing tremendous insight into the artistic process and mind. I can't say enough about the quality of this publication. It is an heirloom-quality book you'll want to give as a gift to friends and family members, while keeping one on your own bookshelves.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best flamework book, beautiful gallery book
I've been lucky enough to take some classes at Penland, a vibrant home for craft work and life. This book--truly inspirational, capturing the artistry and soul of 10 amazing artists, filled with photographs of finished works and pieces being made--is a fitting testament to the flameworking part of Penland's glass program.

Far beyond the school itself, though, The Penland Book of Glass excels both as a gallery book and as a resource for deep, meaningful learning. Any fan of glasswork or fine artistry will find the book to be rich, abundant, and beautiful. It's a truly great book, easily and happily worth the price even during these times. ... Read more

This is a very beautifully designed book.The images are lovely and it's such a fun, soothing activity to color the pages in.So enjoyable!

2-0 out of 5 stars nice ideas and designs, but....
There are lovely stained glass ideas in this book, but... to use as a coloring exercise, you need to know that you really have to have felt tip pens to make the colours show up. There is a lot of black surrounding the designs and the "transparent" colouring areas are a light gray which cuts down on the brilliancy of any colouring.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great idea book
As a stained glass artist, this book got my creative juices flowing. The pictures are fairly complex, just like the stained glass of the 1920's era, and made me wish I had crayons or markers that could duplicate the textured, swirled, multicolored glass that was used during this time! It's a great starting point for people who'd like to take on more complex glass projects and who want to experiment with color combinations befhorehand. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting images, slightly disappointing
I would simply like to supplement the other reviews by saying a couple of things.The other reviews for this book are helpful and I won't repeat them.However there are a couple of things that were not mentioned.

I found the color palette in this book very uninspired, most of the images have a lot of orange and brown that doesn't do much for the designs or seem to have anything to do with what is depicted.

Also, I got this book in large part because one of the reviews talks about a design of a woman combing her hair in front of a volcano and that sounded so evocative.However, it is actually a picture of a volcano with a flamingo above it and a crab below it.What this image actually is seems like a example of many of the patterns to me.Kind of random and uninspiring combinations.However, this is not true of all of them and parts of some of the images are really beautiful.This book is for ideas, not patterns.

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible source book
If you can't find a design you can use for inspiration, you're just not looking hard enough.Not for beginners since the designs are incredibly intricate, but your creativity will wake up and take notice.

4-0 out of 5 stars Super source book
Originally, this was a pair of portfolios of designs in the Art Nouveau period. Art Nouveau was not just twisty flowers, though some people like to stereotype it into those narrow parameters. This is not a how-to book with cutting patterns. It has only the paintings with suggested scale. On a few pages, motifs overlap each other, so you can't just scan and go: you have to build up your idea of the covered areas. One pictorial arched piece is missing the right third, again a challenge to finish it yourself.

The designs range from splendidly romantic conceptions of floral forms to windows a-scamper with squirrels or lizards to some that are distinctly eerie. Bats fly across the moon amidst dead trees. A woman combs her hair before a volcano flowing lava. An octopus and a sea-weed maiden struggle underwater--in combat? in love? Several have fishes and there are even cat designs.

You don't have to see these only as windows. I've converted two to rug designs by taking out the excess black lines of supports or piecing necessary to glass work. You may want to take only one area out of an entire design to render in wood, or do a mosaic version of the whole thing. This is a starting point for the competent craftsman who loves the Art Nouveau energy, not an end product.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not really Art Nouveau
Though some of the designs are nice, most are way too busy for my taste, and I wouldn't really call them Art Nouveau.Quite a few of them look more like Renaissance style stained glass, and some of them look modern (like the sailboat patterns?).It is in color, though, which is nice.Very complicated - definately not for beginning stained glass crafters.

As a fused glass artist, I found this book inspirational.I have only been working in this medium for a couple of years and it has just shown me what possibilities there are and what techniques I still have to learn.The pieces are beautifully photographed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous wonderful book
My son is a budding glass blower and we bought this book for him for Christmas. I could barely stand to give it to him, but we did, and he loved it.It has gorgeous photographs and plenty of them and for a glass designer (or whatever what he does is called), it's a great gift.He was going to take it to his college to show the teacher because it wasn't in their library.That's how good it is.

3-0 out of 5 stars Warm Glass

5-0 out of 5 stars Love this series!
I love this series from Lark!It provides me with lots of inspiration and it is a wonderful tool to learn new artists and their work.I have almost the whole series!

2-0 out of 5 stars Some good some bad
This book contains images that are fantastic however it also contains some incredibly poor ones.Certain artists submitted images of really high resolution or the most accurate photographic image - in slide format and the publisher has scanned them in quite inadequately.I was disappointed at the overall quality of this book and its presentation of artwork. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Lots of nice floral projects
This book has lots of doable projects. I would classify the skill levelas beginner to intermediate, but be prepared to come up with you own colorschemes because there are no photographs of completed projects.

About 95%of the patterns have floral themes: lots of tulips, roses, lilies and othergeneric flowers.There are also a few pattern with women's profiles, twopeacocks, a fish, and a very impressive butterfly pattern (I have seen thisone for sale at the auction sites several times). All-in-all this bookwould be a nice addition to your collection.

4-0 out of 5 stars Art Nouveau Stained Glass Pattern Book
This is a great book..as long as you have a good grasp of the relevant colors and at least a little experience with the whole painting on glass idea. The patterns are wonderful and very reminescent of a lot of thefabulous work seen in the art deco period hotel windows and in oldertiffany glass. There are some wonderful projects even for more or lessbeginners, although I would not class these projects as"starterprojects". But heck its only paint and glass basically so if you makea mess...start over! ... Read more

This is a unique technique that I think will be a fun change to try.I plan on making a small wallhanging to get a feel for the process.Instructions upon first glance at the book look complete and there are numerous photos to help with more visual learners like myself.I really like the feel of the paper in the book too, which have nice, glossy pages and very colorful.

I was amazed and pleased at how fast we received the book we ordered.The condition of the book was exactly like described.I was very pleased with the seller.Thank you so much!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Beginners guide for serious glass painters only
This book describes in detail the materials and techniques used in traditional kiln-fired glass painting techniques. The second edition (which I acquired) has updated material source listings (i.e. where to buy the paints, tools, etc.) and includes URLs which would have been missing from the original. If you ever wanted to make stained glass paintings like you saw in church as a child, this will show you how.

Note that this is a book on kiln-fired glass paints, and as such is not targeted towards those who want to be able to paint glass with resources commonly available around the house. Those looking to do crafsty glass painting should look for a different book on the subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Art of Painting on Glassby Albinas Elskus
This book is a more than an excellent tool in the revival of the lost art of Glass Painting. It informs us about the secrets closely guarded by artists and revealed only to family and trusted friends a few hundred years ago. It revived glass painting in the 1980 pubishing of this book, causingthis arts resergence in the glass movement of our times.

This book shouldbe given credit in a large part for the contribution in bringing thesecrets of important techinques in this beautiful and storytelling art.

This book is full of great information and photo explanations,clearlyand simply. A very important book for glass painters of all abilities. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars You Must Have This Book in Your Reference Library
What we appreciated most about the Art Glass Nouveau is the 424 full color plates and the thorough descriptions.There is little value in a reference book if you cannot clearly see a good illustration of the subject matter.Small price for a lot of information.

The only negative about the book is the plate description and the plate illustration is not on the same page...which makes it a little cumbersome when using the book.But the beautiful colored illustrations and description more than make up for this little issue.

Thank you also for the terrific service.Sincerely,Julia L. Fairchild

5-0 out of 5 stars Art Glass Nouveau - A Treat for the Eyes
Art Glass Nouveau was written by a husband and wife team, Lee and Ray Glover.They have photographed museum quality glass art from the late 1800's - 1930.This is the time period art lovers call Art Nouveau - or the new art.

The pictures are breathtakingly gorgeous, in full color.The text is outstanding in that it not only gives information about the artist (included are the most famous) but tells some of the details of how the glass was formed.

After reading this beautiful book I feel much more knowledgeable about how these treasures were created, yet no less in awe of their creator.I wonder how and from what heavenly body these artists came from.

If antique dealors knew of this book, they would certainly be clawing to get at it!Toobad it is out of print!Actually it has been brought back once already, in 1975.

It is a delight to view, it is abundant in information, and is well written. ... Read more
