Stained glass artist Carolyn Relei has created scores of elegant but simple designs for sidelights, fanlights, and transoms easily adaptable to the many different architectural and decorating styles popular today. Over 150 of her most beautiful designs are presented in this superb stained glass pattern book.The patterns, easily adaptable as templates, depict a wide variety of subjects, from trellised roses, soaring birds, and bouquets of tulips to geometric and abstract designs. Most of the shapes are elongated rectangles, ideal for transoms and sidelights, but Ms. Relei has added many beautiful half-circle fanlight designs and such popular stained glass shapes as the oval and circle to complete this outstanding collection. In addition to stained glass work, these lovely royalty-free designs have applications to many other art and craft projects.
