Colour Blooming offers you an exciting opportunity to deepen your understanding of how molten glass behaves and create unique, absorbing artwork.

This e-book is a comprehensive tutorial on Catherine Dunstan's colour blooming technique. It provides clear instructions, demonstrating how you can design and create your own colour bloom pattern artworks, including detailed project guides to follow.
Colour Blooming is a pattern making process developed by Catherine, who is both an artist and teacher, the technique resembles kaleidoscopic patterns. You won't need a saw or any big equipment other than a kiln, kiln furniture and regular hand tools!
While this process requires competent glass cutting skills, if this is something you lack confidence in there are a number of adjustments that can be made so it is accessible across a range of competency levels. Users will benefit from an existing understanding of glass compatibility and how to read firing programs.


  • 123 pages of technical guidance, tutorials and project guides
  • 101 photographs that demonstrate the different stages of each process
  • 55 technical diagrams to offer visualisation of what happens to the glass as it melts and colour bloom design techniques
  • A narrative writing style, that offers insight into Catherine's discovery process, to explain 'why' as well as show the 'how'
  • Firing guides in both Celsius and Fahrenheit, for both COE90 and COE96 users, and explanations of how these work 

Suitable for all levels of experience
