This first book in Vitrum Studios Shores & Streams series examines in close detail the environments of everyday streams and waterways. It illustrates and explains methods for creating the pebbles, seaweeds, shells and scraps of netting and the waters they inhabit using just sheet glass, frits and powders.

Delve into increasingly complex ways of incorporating these elements into unique glass compositions that embody the essence of shorelines and streambeds. Some pieces revel in the beauty of what is left behind when the tide recedes while others plum the watery depths in a complex multilayered block.

The book is suitable for all levels of experience and will help the beginner grow while challenging the more experienced glass artist. Many of the projects are sized for smaller kilns, but they are all easily adapted to any size piece.

Vitrum Studio, created by Judith Conway and Kevin O'Toole, has gained an international reputation for excellence in kilnformed glass, providing advice and inspiration to thousands of students over the years.
