Lynette Wrigley is a professional stained glass artist and designer working to commission. She also tutors workshops in stained glass techniques. With her interest in design and the decorative arts, she is the author of Murals, Trompe l'oeil and Decorative Wall Painting, and co-author, with Mark Gerstein, of the international best-seller, Contemporary Crafts: Stained Glass, also published by New Holland.From Library Journal :
These books showcase photographs of the work of contemporary professional stained-glass artists as inspiration for glass workers. There are no projects in either book. Peterson groups artists by type of work, e.g., stained, beveled, painted, or fused glass, and includes a description of each artist's work and technique. Photographs show detail or, in some cases, the entire piece in its architectural setting. Wrigley's book has detail studies arranged by subject such as people or animals. Both books are beautifully illustrated and are suitable for general arts and crafts collections.
