The constantly evolving medium of stained glass, which combines form and function in a unique and beautiful way, has produced breathtaking works across the centuries. This book gives a personal viewpoint on the historical development of the art form, and is also a technical manual, describing the tools and techniques involved in the craft of stained glass. Stephen Clare describes the complex considerations involved in successfully carrying out the design and conservation of stained glass, in the process outlining a personal philosophy gained over thirty years of involvement with consummate professionals in the discipline. The author particularly considers the creative process of the production of stained glass and the sometimes uneasy relationship between art and craft. This volume is accessible to those simply wishing to know more about this ancient art form, including custodians of stained glass and amateurs, but it is primarily aimed at less experienced students of stained glass who wish to expand their knowledge; those commonly known in the trade as ‘improvers’. The book is richly illustrated with both practical work-in-progress images and examples of the splendour of stained glass in both its historic and contemporary forms. Aspiring to support and encourage as well as educate, Stained Glass: Art, Craft and Conservation is written in a friendly and readable way and is ideal for all those wishing to know more about this complex and magnificent practice.
