A dragon in Art Glass Pele in Art Glass

FAVOURITE MYTHS & LEGENDS
by Leslie Gibbs & Laura Tayne
published by CKE, ISBN 1-932327-11-8

Available from all good Stained Glass Merchants
Reviewed Spring 2012

This is another very good stained glass pattern book book from Leslie Gibbs and Laura Tayne.

21 designs including a Pegasus, neptune on horseback, a siren in the waves, Greek Gods, a very good female figure in a harp, a superb dragon in a sky (made all the more fantastic by the excellent use of art glass (as seen in the colour plate)).

I do not pretend that I would make every design, but there is something for all tastes here.

These two designs were my favourites.

Available from most Stained Glass Merchants. The book for review was supplied by Leslie Gibbs.

 

Dragon Wings and Faerie Things


DRAGON WINGS and FAERIE THINGS
by Jillian Sawyer
published by Glass Books Pty Limited
ISBN 0-9585282-6-8

This is the third "Faeries" book from this author. She produces wonderful delicate and detailed designs which certainly suit fantasy dragons etc.

The detail of the dragon shown above is from the interpretation of one of Jillian's designs by Belinda Richardson, showing what can be done. Its a stunning picture.

Other dragons and figures in the book tend to be for the young at heart, but there remains no doubt that this collection provides excellent inspiration if you are into fairies, goblins and dragons.
