Showcasing the stained glass designs of Jillian Sawyer -- from door panels, door surrounds, and feature windows to portholes, entrance ways, and restaurant windows -- this book highlights her unique ability to bring life and colour to all her subjects, despite the constraints of designing for this difficult medium. Eighty designs including flora, birdlife, witches, a laden grapevine, and a harlequin are detailed in line drawings, with numerous colour photos of the finished pieces. Quilters will appreciate the smooth transition of these patterns to their craft with each section of glass representing a section of fabric.
Jillian Sawyer has been creating stained glass works of art since 1983 and has taught the art of leadlight and copper foiling at her studio, Firebird Leadlights. She is the author of Faerie Lights, Of Dragon Wings and Faerie Things, and Frog Song.
