With more than 175 gorgeous photos, this illuminating guide illustrates the myriad ways glass windows, walls, doors, skylights, entryways, partitions, and accents can add both drama and warmth to a home. Just as the material itself is transparent, the functional and aesthetic potential of glass is also invisible to many people. But these luminous images reveal that not only is glass an architectural focal point in its own right, but also it allows us to exploit the beauty and flow of natural light--a crucial element in a well-designed space. That's why the discussion begins with a look at lighting exposures. Special sections then break down the different types of glass structures, with the pros and cons of each, while style guides throughout help you to choose exactly the right type for your home, d#65533;cor, and taste. Each chapter ends with a look at a different type of art glass technique, from stained to beveled and beyond.
