From the bestselling author of ‘Introduction to Stained Glass’ comes this well written and lavishly illustrated instruction book that will show readers everything they need to know to be successful fusing artists. The author’s style is easy going with sprinkles of humor making this book a fun and easy read.

These 27 projects are illustrated with how-to color photographs and easy to follow instructions that include all necessary firing schedules. With an emphasis on design composition, pre-fuse assembly and firing technique the reader can copy a project straight from the book or make creative personalized changes. There are dozens of ‘ProTips’ throughout the book, integrated with step-by-step demonstrations – page after page of fusing instruction and inspiration for readers to discover.
