Wire & GlassBook - 2001
Discover the creative potential of two very different, yet complementary, materials. Fifteen unique projects, from mirror frames to fire screens, offer readers step-by-step instructions in this inexpensive and accessible craft. No special skills or elaborate tools are needed to create beautiful embellishments for the home like: * Contemporary clock made of tangled wire and glass beads * Wirework candlesticks created using steel wire and sea-washed blue glass * Folk art-inspired hat rack embellished with mirror shards * Woven heart-shaped galvanized wire and glass-beaded wreath * Summer lantern formed from common chicken wire and glass beads Covering tools and materials, including a section on recycling glass jars and bottles, safety, and basic techniques--how to drill holes in glass, manipulate wire, cut bottles in half--Maguire leaves nothing to chance. Detailed directions, coupled with beautiful full-color photographs, capture every step from conception through construction to display.Mary Maguire studied Fine Art and Textiles at Goldsmiths College in London. Since then, she has developed and exhibited her own work and has authored five other craft titles.
