OUR LATEST VITRUM eBOOK,
SHORES & STREAMS BOOK 1 
A CLOSER LOOK

The beauty of shores & streams captured in glass.

This, the first book in a new Vitrum Studio eBook series, examines in close detail the environments of everyday streams and waterways.   We illustrate and explain methods for creating the pebbles, seaweeds, shells and scraps of netting and the waters they inhabit using just sheet glass, frits, and powders. We then 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’s left behind when the tide recedes while others plum the watery depths in a complex multilayered block.


Carefully detailed and illustrated instructions take you step-by-step through the projects and variations on them.


Suitable for all levels of experience, Shores & Streams, Book 1: A Closer Look contains 86 pages of comprehensive instructions, almost 260 photos and diagrams, and complete firing schedules in both Fahrenheit and Celsius for all the samples and projects.

Many of the projects are sized for smaller kilns, but all are easily adapted to any size piece.
